Why is my IP address blocked?

If you see the message intermittently based upon where you log in from (and thus are able to read this directly), it means either your ISP or one of their customers has repeatedly spammed the board, and your different access methods have different IP addresses.

If you get this all the time (and are reading this via a search engine), either: you're using a TOR node anonymizer; you're in Russia, Ukraine, China, Turkey, or North Korea; you're in Sweeden (which has a huge issue with spammers)

If you get this randomly, it means that your ISP is randomly assigning your IP and there may be a block in place from a prior administrator.

In any case, use the contact us link to send email to the board admins if you feel we should unblock the range.
