Ban by IP address?
« on: Sat, 22 February 2020, 09:47:56 »
Hi,

When I try to access geekhack.org I now get a message
Quote
An Error Has Occurred!
Sorry Guest, you are banned from using this forum!
This ban is not set to expire.
I'm from Ukraine.

While I'm posting this I was able to log in using Tor. That means the ban is not personal, it is by IP address. Funny thing, wiki.geehack.org has been left accessible.

Can you unban me? Thanks.

Can you PM me the IP address from which you are unable to log in? I'll see what I can do.

I know GH has done some funkiness with VPNs, so that might be related here.
