    My IP address was banned??

    For some reason my home wireless network IP address has been banned. I tried sending a message to an admin a week ago with no response. What do I need to do? Thanks

    Brad, I didn't receive an email from you reporting this. I have received several others.

    The plug-in software, Spam-O-Matic, that we use to prevent spam is banning legitimate member IP addresses. We have no control over their IP ban list. Even though I have disabled their 'known spammer IP ban option' it is continuing to ban legit members as yourself. I can't disable the entire program because the site will be crushed with spam. Until we work out a fix, you will have to log in using a proxy server- https://www.proxysite.com/

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Jim

              Still can't on my home network, but using the proxy server works for now. Thanks

                I've sent three messages to an admin within the last two weeks with no response.

                What do I need to do?

                I'm using TotalVPN for now.

                  Todd Colona's *(the ablechef) IP was also banned for an unknown reason.

                      Who did you e-mail? Jim is the correct person. Steven Edwards and Wise Young are listed as administrators too, but they don't really have the time to deal with the day to day issues that Jim handles.

                        I don't know who it's going to. When I visit this site or try to log in I get "Sorry. The administrator has banned your IP address. To contact the administrator click here" Then I'm taken to another page to fill in my name, email & message.

                          Me too. I think that'll be the final nail in this coffin. Using proxy to access.

                            It probably has no relationship to IP addresses being banned, but lately there has been a lot of spam that is getting through the filter. Lots threads begun by first time posters, using odd names, with just a link to who knows where, but the titles of the links suggest sporting event broadcasts. Careful...do not click on these.

                            All the best,
                            GJ

                              My IP is banned too. For all that is done to keep this site up and running I have no problem using the anonymous proxy server.
