Very ANNOYING, tbh, and I normally don´t get annoyed easily whatsoever... it was ok-ish when it only happened on my mobile phone, but now its also on my laptop at home, so in fact I never know if my posts will be actually POSTED...

The IP Blacklist isn't something we control, but it is something we need. It's part of the anti-spam software that we run in the background. It's sadly a necessary evil to help us protect the forum. When you see the message, it should also show you your IP address. Your IP address is controlled by your internet provider and they are the responsible party to correct the blacklist. Having an IP address that is blacklisted can have other challenges as well - your e-mail could be blocked or flagged as spam through major platforms as most do use Spamhaus as part of their protective protocols.
Once you have the IP address that is blocked, visit https://www.spamhaus.org/lookup/. Enter it into the search fields to see why Spamhaus has blocked it. Once you have that information, contact your internet provider and explain the issue - it should be relatively easy for them to get the IP address cleared. It's even likely that your internet provider uses Spamhaus in some way already - Spamhaus has been around for more than 20 years and they are used by nearly every major e-mail platform in the world.
When you enter your IP into either of the search fields on the link above, you'll find detailed information about what needs to be done to get it removed.
I'm sorry that we have to utilize tools like these but to give you an idea of the necessity, the platform has blocked more than 134K spam attempts in just the past 7 days. Imagine what the forum would be like if all of those got through?
Please contact your provider. They should be able to quickly resolve the issue.
Thanks much for understanding.
