Cleared Chrome cache and cookies, logged back in and everything is fine. This wouldn't let me post or do anything though. :confused:

Ok maybe not, I'm getting the same message again on my phone even after clearing the cache and deleting cookies.

Hey, David:
Can you PM the IP address it's showing you?

We use a few tools on the forum to help manage spam. One of those tools does look at IPs. To give you a rough idea, we blocked over 4K spam accounts in just the last 7 days.

The message shown to you is from Spamhaus. You can use their tool here, https://www.spamhaus.org/lookup/ to see which list your IP is on (some are worse than others). I'd take a look there and then follow up with your provider to see what actions they are taking based on which list their IP is listed on.

I'm sorry it's such a PITA but imagine the forum if those 4K + accounts got through.

Kristi
There is nothing more important than this one day.
