This is a new one. Got this one on my phone just now.

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.
