Cloudfront.net blocking access to website

The website has a problem today.
While trying to load numerous different threads, the page would not load and my browser (FF) would report "Establishing handshake with d1r55yzuc1b1bw.cloudfront.net".
This is not specific to just one thread, I could not load multiple threads.

When I blocked that webpage, VTXOA immediately came alive again with no visible ill-effects.

What is that domain and why is it keeping our pages from loading?
Maybe an advertisement? (I have ad blockers so probably not an ad)

So if anyone has the same problem, just add d1r55yzuc1b1bw.cloudfront.net to your block list and problem solved for now.

Hey,

Can you link me to one of the threads that were giving you this warning?

Any thread, sir, including this one.
I googled it and it seems to be another ad/scam/spam domain so I blocked it globally and everything is working just fine.
