Re: spam account message..

Got a strange one on the mobile today when trying to access the site. It started to load then came up with a message saying it had blocked my IP address as a potential spam account.. anyone else had this as it wanted to go to a website and fill in password and username details in order to be removed from the alleged spam list..

 

Being the suspicious person I am I decided against it thinking it could have been a possible phishing scam.. came home and checked the site from the PC and everythings fine there. switched off the wifi on the phone and the pages loaded fine again..

 

Anyone had anything like this? Admins, are you aware of this issue? is the reroute site legit? (sorry, forgot to copy the URL)

Are you talking about this site or the old one?


Whichever, I wouldn`t put anything in those boxes ...

We have tightened up this site with quite a few anti-spam plugins and stuff. It may be that one of them has your IP on their blacklist (especially if it is a shared one). If it happens again, note as many details as you can and let me know so I can trace to see if this is something we can control or not.


Thanks
