I wonder if it is the firewall or security settings, maybe mine is too high and others are getting in, but taking a risk at getting the virus? (if there is one, I don't know, but some google searches show a "site may not be safe" warning) Unfortunately, I can't ask them, because some of them I only know through e-sangha and Buddhist Community.

So, some people can access it because they can find a "route" from their ISP to Leo's server, but others can't access it. It's a common problem on the internet, which can only be solved by having a server in a better place.
