Ok, so this just started happening today, but all my messengers seem to be broken. Every one I sign into it shows everybody offline(there's just no way since I have over 270 contacts, that never happens). I have even talked to some people on facebook who tried to message me who said I'm offline when I'm clearly not. I also didn't receive their messages. So does anybody know what the problem is? I know it's not my internet connection as everything else is working fine.

Ok, new update. It apparently says everybody is blocked. Wtf? I had like two people blocked. I tried unblocking one of the people from facebook who was apparently blocked who just happens to be currently online. After unblocking him it still said he was offline.

I use MSN and Skype(I haven't checked that yet) and just downloaded Adium today after I realized MSN wasn't working.

I think's it's my account in general because every program I go to is doing the same thing. Even ebuddy didn't work.

Apparently somehow my cookies got blocked. I wonder if that has anything to do with it? I don't know how they would get blocked though when I do nothing with them except delete them occasionally.

you should try signing on from another computer and then with another sn on your computer, to figure out if theres some issue with your computer or with your account. then you can go from there.
evidently i only come to ddo to avoid doing homework...

I don't have another computer to sign into to until I go to my friend's which I don't know when that will be.

I just made a new one and now I can't even sign into MSN with it.

No, I think it's a cookie issue. Somehow they got blocked since I can't sign into my new account nor can I log out of my old one.

ok then. if thats the case, then you just enable cookies and the problem goes away.

also if you didn't change your cookie settings then who/what did?

No idea. I didn't even go near the settings.
