Getting Blocked

Post by Diego_HoF »

Okay, i don't know if this happens to you, but in my case i get blacklisted from the forum from time to time, it says that my IP got blacklisted by spamhaus and doesn't let do anything here.
Its annoy when happens and since i have a dynamic IP from my ISP, that can occur anytime, just to guys let you know, i know the forums got updated and this spamhaus is to stop the spammers but who knows if is affecting others too

We are using the akismet antispam plugin.
Unfortunately the longer people continue spamming the more IPs are caught up in it.
I often get the same problem trying to log into the ingame UT IRC

All you can do is ask spamhaus to remove the IP and explain it is a dynamic IP so pointless to block.
Obviously there are people on your ISP network that are spamming.
My only recommendation is to use a VPN or proxy when it happens.
I use SkyZip in chromium browsers but they never updated to the new plugin format for FF
