I see the recent thread on this topic is closed. However, I too have been (and still are) having huge problems accessing all wordpress.com sites (including this forum).
I am in the UK and my ISP is Orange. I performed a traceroute to s0.wp.com and sent it to support yesterday but have had no reply.
Could this please be passed to a Happiness Engineer for some help.
The blog I need help with is brickiesgazette.wordpress.com.
