I don't understand why this is happening. I am using my VPN right now to log in here to make this post. I upgraded my internet Package to a higher tier speed and now when I try to connect to the forums I get a message that says "Sorry. The administrator has banned your IP address. To contact the administrator click here" The most logical assumption I can come up with is that I was probably Issued a new IP with the SPEED upgrade and that IP was probably at one time issued to another person that did something here which had it blacklisted. I did try contacting Admin but so far no response.
