I am unable to search at teoma from my home PC. I sent them an email and got this response:
<paraphrased by Woz
Teoma said block the address because of high robot activity from the IP. Sorry, cannot unblock due to IP history.
/paraphrased by Woz>
What do they mean by "robot" traffic? I have only used them to search and to check inurl:mysite.com for indexed pages on my websites.
Is there a way to get off their banned list?
Any help would be appreciated.

If you were just searching manually, it's hard to imagine that they misidentified you as a bot, unless you had an extremely large number of searches in a short time.
At this point, your best bet is to ask to be unblocked and swear you won't ever do whatever you did again.
