Blocked ip address
« on: May 21, 2018, 12:25:18 AM »
A few days ago I could get on this site no problem but now my ip address seems to be blocked and can’t access the site except on work computer or cell phone data plan. Has this happened to anyone else ?
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are---
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

As a former [other] forum administrator, the fight to keep spammers at bay would be a full time job, with LOTS of overtime, if not for a few tools made available to us. One of the tools automatically blocks IP addresses that have been reported as spammers. If the computer you had trouble on uses DHCP to assign the IP, it's possible that someone on the same server has been being an arse.
