Canada, eh?
Who is in charge here? What was that nonsense about Open Proxy and spam from some website in Sweden? I finally had to call my ISP and figure out what was going on because I wasn't able to contact anyone here. :bigahh:

If you were banned you would not be able to log in at all. My suggestion is to contact one of the admins. But clearly you were not banned because your name isn't on our banned list. So, YOUR ISP if that is what they told you are full of it.

To prevent spam and abuse of the site, we have implemented some restrictions on accessing the site. This includes banning signups that use well known spam domain names, and in some cases blocking access to users using proxy servers that have been included on various black lists for abuse problems in the past from various other sites. And other various measures.

If you would like, feel free to contact me using the PM system with the specific details of how you were blocked or the messages you received when trying to access the site so I can look further into your problem.

Thanks,
Dan

Thanks Dan for clarifying this, I was not aware that we had such a setup in place. Amazing what you don't know when you are just a lowly moderator! LOL ;)

Seriously this is good info to know!

Excellent to hear. The spam at SBS was getting ridiculous.
