    Ok I am posting this via a proxy server but I havnt been on here in around a week and when I goto log in its saying I have been IP banned? :confused: I havnt even been here that long, made a couple genuine threads and a few legitimate posts in some threads and just wanted to find out whats going on.

    My account has my email details if a mod wishes to contact me regarding this. Thanks.

    I have not heard of any issues with you large enough to warrant banning. We do not have an "IP Ban" feature. Sounds like an Aussie government thing. Me thinks it is on your end.

    here is a screen cap I took, I tried running the forum on IE8, Mozilla, and chrome...really sucks if the Aussie gov is censoring me, but it also would not surprise me. I'm just hoping the admin could look into it so I can see if its my end and what I can do, this free proxy is hit and miss when it will let me on.

    Yesterday our server came under a SYN flood attack.

    This attack was mostly from IPs from Asia Pacific so we had to ban whole strings of IPs to stop the attack.

    I bet it has, I'm on a couple blade orientated forums and some new guys get off to rocky starts from the get go. I'm pretty thick skinned and don't get bent out of shape easily, but some people take everything online personally.

    Anyhoo glad this is all soughted...thanks guys for the quick responses! :cool:

    This forum is amazingly tolerant compared to some college football forums I have belonged to. I know one fellow who was banned after one post when he merely laid out the facts of why that board's team wouldn't beat our school's team. :eek:

    Due to another post on this site, I believe that I've discovered at least two other boards that have been under attack. smith-wessonforum.com and pistolworld.com are both inaccessible. It will be interesting to see if others pop up. :eek:
