Reports about this have been coming in for a while now, but I've never seen this error message either.
Sparks and allTunes have multiple server mirrors, and I had wondered if there could be a problem with just one of them, but Rdog49's report of problems with both services seems to rule that out. I wondered if they were randomly blocking some accounts as sometimes happens with payment options but again, Rdog49's experience blows that idea out of the water too. The other possibility I can think of is that they're blocking some IP address ranges. One way to test that would be for someone who has this problem to try connecting from the same computer via a VPN or trusted proxy service, or if they have a laptop, connecting to the internet at another location. Apart from that, I'm out of ideas.
