Hello

Can somebody tell me why i am blocked?

I was put on a blacklist, why?

I tried to write in the Real World military topic, but it showed me that my IP was blacklisted because of spam.

P.S.

I accidently posted this on General Projects.

Greg is the only one, as far as I am aware, that can investigate.

Normally he is very quick to respond to such things but he must have some real world stuff on if he hasn't responded yet.

Every time someone submits a post, the email and ip addresses of that user are automatically checked against the Stop Forum Spam, which is a global database used by thousands of forums to share spammer data. Your username doesn't appear in the logs, but one of your IP addresses used around the 5th was indeed blacklisted.

I noticed that you get a new IP from your ISP quite frequently. With dynamic IP address, there's always a chance that your address was used by someone with bad intentions. I realise that this is inconvenient, but it does prevent about 60 registration attempts per day from known spammer accounts on this forum.
