You've got to be careful, any bugger can get in otherwise, even if they've not been seen on RR for about 8 years lol.

I seem to have fallen foul to this too since last friday. On WiFi at home I'm banned but mobile or other Internet connections are fine.

I tried to contact the admins but not heard anything. I don't know if that is an unmonitored mail box.

I'll get someone to look into it. I sometimes find restarting my router solves the problem when it happens to me.

You’re definitely not on the ban list, so I’m guessing it’s an IP address issue. It can happen with shared addresses.

I’m remembering a day after I’d got blackout drunk, with the worst hangover anxiety I’ve had in my life, seeing that I’d been banned from here and spent the entire day (until getting back to the comfort of my home IP address) wondering what I might have said. Something so bad it didn’t even come with a warning or temporary ban, just a full on “fuck off, you’re gone forever”. It was quite an alarming sensation.

I wish I’d seen this thread before that happened.

I'm able to access the site again whilst connected on my WiFi. Thanks to everyone who did anything.

And now banned again after having to restart my router. Ho hum. I can add reading RugbyRebels to my list of reasons to go to the pub. Every cloud.

I have no power over the accidental banhammer, but my experience has been with BT that, if you turn your router off at the wall and then restart it, it allocates you a new IP that is not on the banned list.

Folks,

We have a number of IP addresses that have been placed on the banned list previously due to individuals misbehaving on the board or to geo-block areas of the world from where we were experiencing high levels of spamming. I've review them this morning and removed all IP address bans.

As Puja points out, your broadband provider may allocate you an IP address which has been previously used by a member who has been legitimately banned. This issue should be resolved now, but if you do experience any issues then please try and find out the IP address that you are using to access the board so I can check in more detail.
