Its come to my attention that a few members IPs have been banned from this website. I assure you it wasnt on purpose
I dug into it a bit more and it seems the new version of the website software has an anti-flooding security feature built in. If it detects too much access / posting too quickly it assumes its a computer doing it and bans the IP. This will be handy down the road if we actually ever do get attacked by hackers.
But for now, I disabled this feature and I deleted all of the banned IPs. So theoretically everyone should be able to access the site again. Unfortunately, if they cannot visit they wont be seeing this message, but I know alot of you inter-communicate via emails outside of the website and can pass this along.
Sorry about the headaches, I didnt even know this feature got added LOL
