Getting banned by IP

Hello!

Strange things happens with OpenMW forum: this warning randomly appears since yesterday. When I visited forum last time -- in November if I remember correctly -- everything was fine.

I haven't done anything (except reading threads): no rule breaking (I was not event logged in), no hack attempts, no dos. But got banned.

What did I wrong?

I take it you posted this from another computer then?

Anyway, the most likely thing is that you have a dynamic IP that accidentally changed to an IP we've banned before (a spambot or whatever). Do you still have the issue on that computer?

EDIT: Or wait, do this message come up sometimes, but not always?

Yes, this message appears sometimes.

For example, now I've getting it for every second page. One page is normal, another - with this "You've been banned".

And it is rather annoying.
