Blocked from the forums?

Postby Wesley » October 19th, 2008, 11:53 am

I've been thinking I was locked out of the forums for the last few weeks because my work computer delivers a message saying as much - that I am not allowed to enter the forums any longer. It was only today I really tried at home and found out otherwise.

So, I know it is not my work's firewall, because they allow me to load the screen that tells me I am not allowed to enter the forums as well as other pages on austinimprov. And I know it isn't my account, because it happens before I can even log in. So I'm guessing my IP or some such is blocked? How can I get it unblocked?

I got banned a few weeks ago because my ISP was blacklisted due to somebody on there being a spammer (or having a computer turned into a spam-bot). I think there were some others in a similar boat - I emailed Bob about it and he was his usual awesome self and took care of it.

I miss insightful dialogue from my old friend fedorsumhu

So I'm not allowed to spam the forums?

Sucks.
This was my biggest Viagra, dental health care plan, and "please help me transfer $3000 out of my nation's crumbling, corrupt economy" e-mail scam customer base, too.
