Forums say my IP is banned if I don't log in.

Hello

I just noticed the forums say I'm banned if I don't login before viewing them. Is this supposed to be the case ? I have no idea why that is andn ever noticed it before, nor did I post ever before. Anyones got an idea ?

Edit: I am connecting from germany and am not connecting through AOL.

I don't know - I suspect that because you are in Germany, browsing of the forums should be done through the German Site and not the USA site.

Which site are you browsing the forums in? I believe that they are the same forums no matter which site you use. I see you logged in today to post. Did you do this with the USA site or the German Site?

The German Site is: http://www.southpark.de/

The USA Site is: http://www.southparkstudios.com/

Good luck! I would browse using http://www.southpark.de/ if I were you only because you are in Germany.

I'm browsing the forums through the german site, southpark.de. I tried to click on one of the most recent topics and got that message. I then logged in and was able to view everything just fine, I'm just a bit curious what exactly is wrong with that :?

Your IP range is permabanned because a spammer used an IP in that range before you did, and we crack down hard on spammers.

So my whole ISP is banned? How come I can still login, is that intended and am I save ?

The message I'm getting is "You have been permanently banned from this board. Please contact the board administration for more information.
Your IP-adress has been banned."

I'll remove the ban until another spammer comes and ruins your access.

I'm encountering the same thing, it was saying my IP address was banned, but once I registered and logging in, I could view the forums just fine.

It said that spam was the reason for the ban, but I have never spammed any forum and I never will.

I'm having the same thing happen to me. I'm in the US and am using the US site.
