Are you talking about my ISP (Charter Communications) or my Dynamic DNS
service (DYNdns.org)?

I have just spoken to Charter Tech Support for the second time about
this, and the tech assured me that they were not 'affecting' port 80 in
any way, nor were they using anything similar to portsentry.

It seems more likely to me that the culprit is DYNdns.org, since I have
only been using them since about the 11th of this month, and *also* they
have just completed a major task - moving their datacenter.
Check out all that they did within the last 5 days.
I have corresponded with them once and here is the gist of it:
