Accessing tumblr custom URL sites with Cogeco

So for the past few weeks I haven't been able to get to either Casey's blog or Alex's blog from home. Turns out Alex can't get to his own site from work either.. What's in common? Our internet provider is Cogeco. There are other people experiencing the same issue.

What I figure is that someone put up a spam tumblr blog somewhere with a custom URL, and Cogeco banned tumblr's custom IP I emailed them about it almost a week ago and even though they didn't respond, based on that forum post it looks like they've been looking into the issue.

I suppose I will just wait patiently until they figure it out.

Update 14-Jan-12: It seems that they fixed it, at long last!
