    The add on software to vBulletin, Spam-O-Matic, used to prevent spam is banning legitimate member IP addresses. Even though I disabled it, it won't shut off. The other day I found out this software is no longer supported by the creators. I can't uninstall it because Steven controls all of that. I have been unable to get in touch with him for a while. In the meantime, those with blocked IP's will have to log in with a proxy server- https://www.proxysite.com. There are many free proxy servers, if one doesn't work, google and try another.

    Sorry for this mess.

      Sorry for this mess.
      There are several long timers whose IP addresses have been blocked, but many others haven't been blocked (including me, so far). If my IP address gets blocked, I am with "Domosoyo," I won't mind using the proxy. But, that said, it is sad that this once vibrant site is now experiencing yet another blow to the core. Very sad.

      All the best,
      GJ

          An FYI....
          I just logged in my normal way out of habit and found I got in. Doesn't look like I have to use the proxy server anymore.

                My home IP address has been banned!!! Why??

                The only way I can log on is to turn off my wifi or leave home! Why has my home IP address been banned? Please help! I've sent 2 messages but it is still banned. My apologies if this is not the right place to post this. I'm limited to my small phone screen!

                          The software is crazy, I haven't changed anything in days, and it is still banning IP's.

                          The good news is that I got in touch with Steven and he is ok. He will be uninstalling the old spam software and installing a new one.

                            Hey Jim - Thanks for all you (and Steven) do. It can be thankless and I just wanted to let you know your work is appreciated.
