For a period over the weekend I couldn't post because my IP was banned. I had no notification and no PMs warning me. I wasn't aware of making any contentious posts. Was it just a glitch or have I unwittingly upset the great Mods in the Sky?

Just curious,

I can find no evidence of you upseting anyone. However, I did find 26 individual accounts sharing the same IP. Mods can suspend an individuals access, but only a Community Manager can ban an IP address.

Ah, thanks steve_v. As I'm on dialup I suppose that there is always a chance, however small, that my (dynamically assigned) IP may just happen to be the same as one that was/is banned. Perhaps that explains it?

Cheers,

WB.

Maybe they just got jealous of your computer.

Yep, that explains it. Should you have that difficulty again, take note of the affected IP and PM one of the mods. They can leave a note for Ubi's admins to look into it.
