I was banned this morning on my android phone using parent's wifi, even as a guest, no reason listed. Clearing cookies/deleting browsing history did not help. Able to log in using mobile data. Weird.
Update.  Today the forum is working fine on wifi but I was briefly banned when it cut out and switched to mobile data. One of mom's neighbors must have been an issue lol.

Since I got my newish phone (iphone 11 vs old 6), I've been getting regularly banned on it when in a nearby city, where I am for 10 days a month.  I get the message that I've been banned for being rude, whether logged on as a guest or under regular user name.  I can sometimes get in by clearing cookies, and when this does work, it can work for days or only until I change threads.  Totally unpredictable and super annoying.
Everything is fine on my phone at home.

I was using the forums as normal while traveling and now Iím shown as this screen name being banned on my laptop.  Still works on mobile.  Cleared cookies, back to my usual IP address, and still banned on that device.

Any advice is appreciated.

 

Wow, a phone plan for fifteen bucks!
