Pc log in issues
« on: February 16, 2017, 07:34:22 AM »
Yesterday when I went to the forum it told me I was banned for political messages. I logged out but still couldn't view the forum. I rarely post and if I do it's not political. Any ideas what happened?

I am able to log in on my phone, that is how I am posting now.

It's possible that someone's IP address got banned, and now your computer is getting that address from your ISP.  Try rebooting your router and see if it picks up a different address.

Depending on your setup at work, it is extremely possible that everyone at your business does an address translation (or passes through a proxy server) and appears as one (or a small number) of IP addresses.  It likely means you have a fellow forum member around you.
Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
