That is out of our control as we use a third party IRC network, which appears to have blocked your IP address for some reason. Your best option may be to contact the network from their website and inquire about any bans.

Client used won't resolve banned connections. It's like trying to access a website blocked by your ISP by using Safari instead of Chrome.

If you are accessing through a shared network, e.g. at a school, it is possible another individual at your school violated rules of the server.
