Its not a big deal but I have been told twice that my IP adress has been baned when I left the computer for a while and then came back and tried to refresh the page. I just loged off of the net and then reconected and that fixed it so like I said its not a big deal. I just wondered, what makes it do that? I noticed earler today another poster said it had happened to him too.

If you use aol as your ISP, then theres your answer, aol gives new ip when reconnected to the net, which in return recycles IP address and gives you chance of getting a banned one. If aol isn't your connection to the net, you may want to check your internet opts. and see if the problem with your connection could be causing the problem you have.

I dont use AOL. The thing about it is that I was online for a while posting on finheaven, got up and came back later only to be told my IP adress had been baned. The first time it happened I was afraid somone else had loged on as me and got me Banned.

we generally don't IP ban AOL users, because that would wipe out about 500 other members too... there are other ways of dealing with AOLers...

as for this issue... I'm not sure what the deal is without more info. ;)

Dialup.

The IP address you're posting with NOW is not on the banned list... however, by using dialup...it changes everytime you sign in... the IP you had when you posted above, has also been used by 6 other members (none of which are banned to my knowledge)... however, the next time you dial in... you may obtain an IP address that was banned at one time because of another member... and when that IP was blaklisted, we probably didn't realize it was a shared IP address....
unfortunately there's not much I can tell you to do, other than what you've been doing... you've posted with too many IPs for me to go through them all and find the one that's blacklisted (which is exactly why we generally don't IP ban AOL users) IF (and that's a big if) I can figure out which IP address it is... I'll take it off the black list... but I can't make any promises. ;)

Wow, that is crazy. I never knew dialup did that.

Thanks for taking the time to check this out Warf, I was more curious than anything and my curiousity has now been satisfied. ;) If it happens again I will just log off and reconect.
