    Exactly the same problem here. Began a couple days ago. The denial message includes a code number to be included in any query about the incident. Just click on the hotlink, write your message and include this code -- then be met with stony silence.This "denial" is totally hit and miss, and ASK seems indifferent to queries or complaints. I've already posted three.Could this be some kind of "warm up," in thier hopes of SOPA finally being crammed down all our throats by Washington? Could it be "Big Brother?" I get smacked in the face with "denied" in response to even the most innocuous searches.It's true. It's happening. And more knowledgeable people than my self should seek out the answer(s). If no answer is forthcoming, then I would urge a mass boycott of ask.com by as many users as can be mustered.

    I agree with OneDollar. It is likely that they banned your IP range. This could be due to anything from malicious clicking on offers to browser hijacking virus attempts. Have you tried contacting Ask.com directly about the issue?

    It is a mass IP ban.

    maybe try accessing using a proxy.
