DuckDuckGo unreachable through Tor exit node

Hello everyone,

I recently received a report that duckduckgo.com was unreachable through my exit node. I SSHed in and confirmed it. Using lynx, I can connect to google.com, Wikipedia, or any other site, but not DuckDuckGo. Pings to DuckDuckGo on port 80 go unanswered. This just happened recently in the last hour or so. I wasn't able to find another instance of this on a search, but perhaps I missed it. How could this have happened, and what can be done to fix it?

Traceroute:

Thanks.

Is this still the case for you? What IP address does duckduckgo.com resolve to for you? Can you access our hidden service? http://3g2upl4pq6kufc4m.onion

No, it seems to have resolved itself. If you did something, thank you very much. I was trying to reach 50.18.192.251
