GoDaddy, my host, blocks my outgoing HTTP requests and so I cannot use Akismet and any other pkug-ins, apparently. Trying to get WP-Stats going didn't work either. We get that 500_Internal Server Error message. GoDaddy isn;t nuch help. All I got from them is that I can bypass their server with CURL, but they can't explain to me what that entails or how I might actually do it. I'd sorely appreciate some help with this. Anyone have a fix?
