That's what I thought but that doesn't explain why some people can load the site. Also I asked them to check the IP address they're getting and I typed that IP in my browser and still doesn't load.

I think they might be changing the setting for their servers since they were recently sold to a new company?

totally offtopic wishful thinking... Man....wouldn't it be cool if their archived posts and members were combined with benzworld?

Same here. Internet Brands acquired MBWorld a while back.
as a professional web dude i gotta say they're doing a pretty piss poor job of forum migration :p

Based upon what I have seen of MBWorld, I gotta say not so much...

It is actually working for some people as I received a few message notifications. I know a person in Chicago just posted to the forum.

So it does not sound they are migrating.

Hacker hijacking is possible.
