    Default Does Anyone Else Get Responses of IP Addresses Being Banned?

    This has been happening for a while for me. When I try to open the site, I'll be told my IP address has been banned. This happened even before the new server change at times. Does this happen for anyone else?

    Spambot services often employ VPNs to avoid bans, so if you use a VPN it's likely you're just being caught in that net.
    Otherwise, feel free to blame users who have been banned that try to circumvent it by using VPNs and similar services - we're forced to ban an IP range, which sadly covers other users at times.
