    Default Why have I been banned?

    Well, I logged on a few minutes ago only to discover that my IP had been banned my the Admin. I am wondering why this is? I am posting under a Proxy because I can\'t view the forum. Is there something I have done wrong?

    I dunno man. Email spec. Ususally when someone is banned the ID gets banned not the IP. Most people can reset the IP, it's much more of a pain to sign up for a new Id.

    Did you try the adminitstrator contact link? Probably a software issue, but I'd want to know myself. I don't know anything but our fearless leader has been under the radar for a few. I was impressed by his surfacing a week or so ago.

    There were a ton of failed login attempts to an administrative account here at PL so I shut down access to a block of IP's. Unfortunately he happened to be at one of the many I blocked.

    For future reference I will block single IP's instead of ranges. My response was a throwback to the PHPBB days of PL where there were a lot more attempts at admin accounts and it was generally easier to block entire ranges.
