Yes.  Actually, it seems that is what 
is being blocked, although I seem to not be able to email 
David Brooks through his iinet email address, either.  But, 
the iinet main page does work for me.

A number of other people seem to indicate if their routing 
takes them through cogent that it fails, so this may be the 
key node that is blocking iinet.
