I'm trying to validate the site using , but i keep getting 500 internal server error. I've tried everything I can but can't seem to figure it out.

I don't see a "500 internal server error", I see "500 Can't connect to (connect: timeout)" so it seems that for some reason, the validator is not able to connect to  The validator instance at does not have that problem though.

I hear this seems to be because the servers are being blocked by something outside W3C's control.  Checking with the ISP that's hosting might help.
