Banned for spam?!?!?!

Post by Bruneaux » Wed Apr 02, 2014 9:11 pm

Another user on this forum tells me that he got a message that he can not post because of "Spam". :o

I doubt that it was him (could have been hacked or a bot) and I'm trying to contact whoever is the Grand Poo Bah :D so we can check out the problem and let he back in.

Who handles these issues?

Thanks

What's his username?
There's just been about 10 spambots that posted spam threads nearly at the same time and have been banned. He might have been in the lot with a suspicious looking username and mistakenly taken down with the lot.

There has been some posting problems, I couldn't post for a few hours due to a "blacklist" problem with IP addresses.

He is BobNJ.

And he got the "blacklist" IP list message.

Maybe by the time he gets home the problem will be resolved.

It should, the issue has been fixed a couple of hours ago.

Problem was caused by a DNS lookup issue on one of the spam checkers.

Took a bit of time to track down :)
