I'm fairly certain my ban expired a while back, yet I am still unable to browse without using special means. What gives?

It's related to the extended downtime a few months back.  Without going into too much detail, it also resulted in some people being IP blocked by the firewall due to trying to access the site too frequently.

Unfortunately, the site's owner is the only one who can fix that.  If you know how to contact him directly, that would be a good option; otherwise, you'll have to PM one of the moderators[1] with your IP address so that it can be unblocked, since I'm assuming that you connected via a different means than normal to be able to post this message.

Dyoo seriously have a fixed IP? Might be easier to tell your ISP to change it.
When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be bleedn obvious.

Thanks.

Dunno, don't care, I'll just PM jdawg70. Not in the mood to contact my ISP.

Well, I've been blocked in the same way and haven't found a way in... until now when it seems to be fixed.
