Wipe your IP Bans, please

Recommended Posts

I don't have a choice of the IP addresses provided my service provider. I've tried your forum after a few modem resets and still get IP banned. It's startling to see BANNED after clicking through a search engine hit. I wiped cookies and even registered using a VPN. But once I return to the block of IPs given to me by cableone, I'm banned. Thank you.

I remember I tried a VPN years ago as an experiment and found it was blocked here.

I have found that my internet provider (BT) has a habit of blocking IP addresses for no valid reason.  Rather than use a VPN I use Nirsoft QuickSet DNS to change my domain name server - it's quick easy and free - and often a lot faster.

Try NordVPN. It works pretty well for me.

Yup, right now your IP is showing up a a spammer!  We DO NOT recommend using a proxy server or even a VPN .  They tend to assign IP addresses that are well know being used by spammers.

Yup, Nord has clean IPs. It's how I can access this forum!

I cant access without VPN! CableOne is blocked! I'm not banned from creating an account and (theoretically) posting spam, I'm banned from viewing anything. I've been through at least two CableOne IPs since I started 'simming again months ago. I've finally reached the frustration to free-time ratio where I must say something about your wildcard IP ban policy.

Have you tried the "Contact Us" at the bottom of the forums index page or the tab at the top of the index page.
