    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

    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.
