I am glad you finally banned Ozymandias

The motherfucker was polluting the board with actual travel to DPs.

We cannot abide that shit.

I am not sure what is going on.

I see him and he is not banned.

I am guessing there is some other problem that is best solved by first describing the problem, telling me how to replicate what it is you observe and then seeing if I can troubleshoot it and resolve it.

So I will do tech support shit.

1. What makes you think he is banned?

2. What error messages appear?

3. When did you notice this?

I am wondering if this is akin to Alphabet's mystery editing posts that no one edited.

Adjust your humour detection settings Kurt.

Could be, he posted a screenshot on Facebook of his account after he logs in that says he is banned.

Might be an idea to contact him directly with email?

Thanks, I emailed him.

Could have used those facts in the post. I am guessing he might be operating from an IP that was previously blocked due to spammers.

I have 16 years of spammer blocking IP addresses on this board and some of what was a spammer IP is now moving towards legit uses.

Why let facts get in the way of a hissy fit?

Sorry, thought I was actually doing all of you a favour by making you aware that you somehow had banned a legit user and that you might take the initiative to fix it. Thought I might even do it in a humorous way.

Sure as fuck won’t happen again.

You are correct, my mistake. Funny if it wasn't true.

emailed him, hope it is cleared up now. He was using a VPN previously owned by spammers.
