I run my blog on Wordpress, my Wordpress agent has informed me that ModSecurity is blocking my Jetpack, so leaving it worthless. Suggested I send you this link- to see the problem and be able to disable it. Thanks

Thanks for posting your question regarding JetPack and WordPress connections being blocked by ModSecurity. I'm sorry to see this is causing an issue with the functionality of your site! This can easily be corrected by disabling ModSecurity for your domain. However, the safest way to use JetPack would be to keep ModSecurity enabled for your domain and add IPs to the ModSecurity Whitelist. Whitelisting allows specified IPs to circumvent ModSecurity and connect regardless of the rules ModSecurity is enforcing. The IP addresses I was able to find from their Hosting FAQ's are available here. I hope this helps!
