Post What is this?
I've been trying to post on the OT Thread on my laptop and been unable to do so. It shows a red message saying my IP is blocked as it's on a blacklist. Why? I haven't done anything wrong :?

I've had that.

Follow the link to remove it.

Oh? I was a little bit wary about following a potentially dodgy link. I have no idea where it would take me. I've just posted the piece I wanted to on the OT Thread via my mobile.

it's safe enough. :)

You could wait (as I did :) ), because I couldn't be bothered at the time, and it will probably clear.

However, following the link will enable you to remove the block for your IP address. It's an over caution on their part.

Seems to have righted itself this morning. Tried yesterday and it was still blocking me. Haven't done anything other than click on the link mentioned below, which requested me to contact my ISP provider then click another link. I didn't bother with either.

I got blocked here like that too. I followed the link and removed my IP address from the list of suspicious ones. Lol.
