It was a few weeks ago, and I have no idea why it happened. I did try to contact the administrators but never learned anything. And now I'm back to regular operations. Just curious as to what could have happened.

I have here a list of IP spoofers/anonymizers, and I will be blocking some of those IP numbers if we've had any problem posters from them. If you can't post or log in, this may be the reason. We have found that a lot of trolls use these services. This may inconvenience some well-intentioned folks, and for that I apologize, but we have had enough.

And I seem to recall that she did this a few weeks ago, too, but I can't find the thread where she announced it.

So it looks like you may have been temporarily caught in the crossfire.

Thank you, Duck Duck. I have no idea what it all means, but I'm innocent. (Of what, I'm still not sure.)
