    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 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."one day the machines will take over....I am still banned... and going through the proxy I can only use the quick reply.... that is why I copied Jim's post instead of the reply with quote...I'll get by...lol

    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.
