Re: unable to access www.quibids.com

I'm not able to access www.quibids.com from network.
ICMP works fine:
Perhaps Estonia has the site blocked. In the US, there's been some
chatter that the site is closer to gambling than auction. Some
Attroney Generals have taken notice.

PING www.quibids.com ( 56(84) bytes of data.

..but SYN packet to www.quibids.com:80..

..does not receive SYN+ACK. If I try to open www.quibids.com in Fx, I
get the "The connection has timed out" error. However, if I use
http://www.t1shopper.com/tools/port-scan/ tool, port 80 is open and if
I google for "cache:http://www.quibids.com/";, the Google cache gets
updated so the page needs to be accessible at least from some
networks. Is it somehow possible to detect, whether the traffic to
port 80 gets filtered by the quibids.com or somewhere along the path?
In other words how to trace out the exact machine, which drops the SYN
packet to port 80?
