    I just joined this sight was confirmed read several posts then later I sign on to receive this message.
    PhlatForum - Error

    You have been banned for the following reason: Spam.

    I have never posted on that sight and since the two sights seem to be run by the same people perhaps someone could explain and /or reinstate me. I sign in as mikemitchell@tds.net

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Hi Mike,


    A similar thing happened to me recently on another forum. Obviously it depends on your country but here in the UK dynamic IP addresses are shared amongst an unknown group of users and if one of them happens to be a ‘spammer’ some, or all, of the IP addresses (in the set) get blocked when the ‘spammer’ is banned from the forum.


    This could have happened in your case and I am sure Mark can resolve the problem. You can contact him directly by sending Kram242 a PM. In the meantime you could perhaps try creating a new user account on the Phlatforum and see how that goes.

    Thanks for info. Cannot send PM because the sight has removed all my privileges. Does Mark have the same ID on this sight?
