This question already has an answer here:

I think every one should have the right to disagree about the chain head - but he should not tell me all the time:

Is there a good way to deal with this? Perhaps block the peer? This is really hurting the sync-process ( look at the timestamps - really bad UX this way )

As it came up: Parity/Kovan are no option for me. Neither technically nor politically.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • 13:20:51.390 and still getting no sync an the same message :-( – ligi Mar 5 '17 at 12:21
  • Is this the testnet or the main chain? – Richard Horrocks Mar 8 '17 at 9:02
  • It is on ropsten – ligi Mar 8 '17 at 10:57
  • In that case, what you're seeing will be a consequence of the spam attacks that began in February, I'm afraid. I'll suggest that this question be duplicated to another thread concerning the attacks. That thread has some suggestions (i.e. use the new Kovan chain on Parity). – Richard Horrocks Mar 8 '17 at 11:06
  • Hm thanks - but Parity/Kovan are no option for me. Neither technically nor politically. Also I do not think this is a duplicate question. – ligi Mar 8 '17 at 11:54
