The Forum has been experiencing some severe spamming problems, mainly from but not exclusive to the Far East. We have had to ban literally thousands of accounts, e-mail and IP addresses. Sometimes, when we were getting huge numbers of spam accounts from a concentration of IP addresses we found it easier to ban a wide range of addresses at once. It is very unfortunate that one of your's appears to fall into that group but I have no idea how else we can do it. At the moment we are deleting 20-30 spam accounts every day but as we have diverted them to our personal e-mail accounts the board doesn't see the extent of the problem. To sum up how bad it is, there were 3 pages of Admin activity between the beginning of September 2012 and the 13th December 2012, since the 13th December there have been 29 pages of Admin activity. These are being dealt with by Sue and I but we both work full time and it is taking up a huge amount of our free time just to keep the board clear of these arsewipes.

Since you can ban on individual IP addresses - you must be able to open on my IP - it is a static IP. pls. send me an e-mail address so I can sendt the IP address to you - my e-mail is in my memberinformation

Should be working now but I can't check as I'm struggling to get into the Forum myself today. As for PM's, they should be working.

Hi Scott.
Thank you so much for keeping trying - but unfortunately the depressing info I get still looks like this:

"You have been permanently banned from this board.

Please contact the Board Administrator for more information.

A ban has been issued on your IP address."

:cry

We have some issues at the moment and I can't access the banned IP's to manually remove the ban. I will keep trying.

You are not alone. It appears that when some spammer's IP addresses are banned it is affecting real members but I can't see a way round it at the moment. Investigations are ongoing.

well, anyone who has a Hyonsung deserves to be banned :lol

However, that's not how we operate here.

We're trying to get the server problems resolved, and then we will have a better chance of unbanning those who have been banned by accident

We haven't banned any new IP addresses for a few days now, we can't access the server to ban or unban any IP addresses.
