Permanently banned - what did I do?

Now it would appear I'm in the dog house as well. Went through much to get back on, not only banned but there aren't any new postings.

Thanks - today all appear well. I notice the New Postings no longer carrying everything. It was funny, I was reading the postings clicked on a link to ebay in one of the postings and the site would not allow me back in.

After 2 weeks where everything functioned as it should, unfortunately my cell phone again marks me as banned, but I'm still able to log in through my laptop; is it possible to clean the ban list again?

Regards, Lars

I keep trying to log into the site and occasionally I succeed but almost always I am rejected as permanently banned. What need I do?

I am making a list of names of those who are having this problem. I will wait a couple of days and then send this list to Joel. Post here if you are having this problem.

I've just gone ahead and removed some of the banned IPs which I believe were affecting legitimate users.

Fingers crossed this has helped some of you who were affected.

In a recent conversation with Tony, he alerted me to the fact that I may have caused this problem. In getting rid of SPAM, I have been banning IP addresses (whatever that is :eek: ??) My apologies. :(

My internet browser always recognizes the village I live in by my IP address, so pretty specific on location. And I doubt the spammers are from my village :cool: so I don't know why my IP address shows up as a spammers IP address.

IP addresses are just that, an address, it is a way for a network to locate and identify a station. It is a kin to a telephone number
