lol I did apologise. There were three posts in the thread and I grabbed the wrong ip - I can't lie it's not the first time  ;D

But for the record. Most people are on dynamic ip addresses for their home routers.
So switching the router off and then back on again will change your ip address and you'll be unbanned.

Or failing that do what wayfarer did and pm me from another machine or phone or ds or 3ds - basically any internet enabled gadget that's not connected to the router with the banned ip address.

This must be what happened to me too. I have not been able to get on the forum from any of my home computers for 2 or 3 weeks. I can get on the home page but not the forum. It works fine when I take the same computer to my office. I'm traveling now but will work on it when I get back. Sounds like you mods have your hands full with all the spam. Thanks for all the work!

if you haven't already, try rebooting your home router. (switch it off and then switch it back on again).

In most cases where you havea dynamic ip this will change your ip address and allow you back in. In the event you have a static ip address.
email or pm it to me and I'll unban it :-)

If you do not know how to find out your ip address, simply click on this link and it will tell you :-)
