It's probably accidental.

Most geoblocking systems are live and constantly updated with the goal of blocking as few legitimate IP ranges as possible.

However, like any computer system, they can at times be cantankerous, sluggish, or start crashing because of malformed database updates, the color orange, sunspots, etc. So each provider has to make choices, of which there are are two key ones at play here:

1) How long to I make clients wait while the system goes to identify if the client is in/out of the approved region?

2) If the system times out or just delivers an error response, does it fail "open" (meaning even the penguins stealing Wifi down at McMurdo get to watch) or "closed" (meaning even a shirtless Putin riding a unicorn whilst waving a rainbow sword gets denied)

Most setups I know of fail open, btw, despite the various legal issues, etc.

Putin riding a Unicorn in BTCC...

Driving transgressions to be punished by a trampling under Unicorn foot , that'll make 'em behave. If not, off to a gulag!
