Over the past 2-3 days I have arises such a the problem;
I'm glad to hear the problem has been resolved, but something very odd is going on. I looked at the list of banned users and your name/email address doesn't appear at all. This is the list where Steven or the moderators would manually ban a user for various infractions.
I then looked at the ban log and there are 232 hits from the past two days and they all have the same IP address. This address started appearing on September 23. It appears these have been automatically banned. I say this because I know Steven didn't do it, nor did I. And I can't imagine psychoadept doing it either. Of those 232 hits, your name and email address appear six times.
Before I remove the ban, I'd like to confirm your email address and IP address just in case someone is spoofing you. I will send you a PM with the information I'm looking at. If this info is not yours, I won't remove the ban and we'll have to wait for Steven to take a look at it and offer up his opinion.
