The Internet doesn't like VPNs

Written by Simone

It's been a week or so that I started using Wireguard on my desktop too, browsing the Internet and doing the usual stuff I do, but this time connecting both via IPv4 and IPv6 through my VPS.

Results? I've already been banned (or to better state it, my VPS's IPv4 has) from 3 popular hosts: reddit, imgur and alienwarearena. Reason? I don't really know, looks like everyone doesn't like VPNs.

For the time being I resorted to replace with (even in my SearxNG instance) to be able to browse that shit, which unfortunately is sometimes useful. "imgur" is even more trickier, since I was still able to upload images (and also display them) via their API on Glowing-Bear.. But if I try to curl from my VPS shell I get this:

{"data":{"error":"Imgur is temporarily over capacity. Please try again later."},"success":false,"status":403}

"Over capacity", yeah, but it's a 403, you liar!

So, a few moments ago I set my Wireguard service in Windows to manual start, stopped it and now I'm back with Hurricane Electric IPv6 tunnel - I would like to avoid being banned from the rest of the world, if possible.

Thanks for all the fish.
