Any idea why it could be that my IP address has been banned here? I certainly haven't been spamming or anything. I'm having to type this from my phone since I can't get in from my computer.

vBulletin has some quite complex automatic spam filtering tools, so quite possibly your IP addy has been used to serve spam. Best drop a line to the site admins for them to have a look at it. You have done a recent virus check on your PC haven't you? :)

I actually have just been doing virus and malware scans over the past few days and not finding anything beyond the standard tracking cookies and such that always makes their way in.

Hmm, could be an error on one of the blacklisting sites or something, but as I said, you need to contact the admins for a proper answer.

Can't see Phil being banned for anything here. We don't always agree on things; but he's Lightwave through and through for sure. Has to be an error on their part.

Or a spambot spoofed his IP

Looks like everything's been cleared up. No idea what happened but apparently my whole IP range has been banned for a long time. lol

It is the serious looking cat which is causing the problems!

Glad it's sorted.
