[tor-relays] DirAuths are blocking my node on Amazon EC2. Why?

Dear all,

I have a Tor relay running on Amazon EC2 (IP range: and for sometime I am receiving the messages:

http status 400 ("Authdir is rejecting routers in this range.") response from dirserver 'X.X.X.X:80'. Please correct.

The router disappeared from the Tor Directory and the consensus. Its a non-exit node and there seems to be some traffic going on. 

Was there a particular reason for the block or was this specific to my router only? Should I consider moving to a different provider or was I specifically targeted by the block and should not attempt moving somewhere else.
