Problems with IP being blocked

Post by AnnonyMouse »

Attention members.

Have been informed by one of us that their IP address has been blocked. As of this morning (January 24, 2021), the site has installed an IP blocker that should block a lot of the IPs that are the source of invalid membership requests. Since going live, we have averaged between 5-10 of these per day, with an occasional day of over 15.

If you have problems posting today with an indication of an IP being blocked, please email one of the admins. At present, not sure of how widespread this issue is or reasons behind. The more data we have, the easier it will be to address this issue.

Thanks for understanding and your assistance.
