Thread: My IP address was banned??

  1. #1

    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.
