I mention the C class because all the domains in it are hosted by one company.
Is the C class banned, or is there it likely that AV really cannot find a route through to the server?

Welcome to the boards, and I *love* the nick.
Does this mean I have to fear you? ;)
A little background: Machiavelli believed that people didn't respect you unless they feared you...
I have had a look at some of the other sites in the C class and there is quite a bit of cloaking as indeed there is on mine, but none of the cloaking is dodgy (I know lots of people think that any cloaking is dodgy, but what I mean is that this stuff is non-spammy SEO which exactly reflects true content).
I personally think that this is a shot at cloakers - AV I think is saying "any cloaking is considered spam, and if we can uncover your cloaking and discover two different pages, you're out of the index."
grnidone: While I am in exile from AV, probably not. But I'll return....

We could not connect to the host at this time.
I'm still pretty convinced that this is a banning thing - the thing is, if I speak to AV about it and they point out that there is cloaking, do I have a leg to stand on?
Could a ban have happened from someone on the same IP submitting vast quantities of pages?
This shouldn't be a problem...just turn off your cloaking for AV(it's not like your going to loose any positions) also clean up anything else that could be considered spam....
"Could a ban have happened from someone on the same IP submitting vast quantities of pages?"
Yes AV just acknowledged this at the Dallas SEO conference yesterday.....
