Banned on Chrome browser
« on: 04 August 2015, 12:50:24 PM »
I went to view the forum last night on my laptop and was told that Ziggy was banned. i thought I might have a suspect cookie so delete cookies on Chrome. So went to visit forum again and was told that as a guest I was banned.  Firefox works with the site on my laptop, and both chrome and firefox work with the site on my desktop PC. I attach the message that is being displayed.

I sometimes get a message about not being allowed access to the server but that is usually caused by running through a proxy server or a VPN service.

I have no idea Ziggy.  Hopefully Mike may be able to shed some light.

I'll leave it up to Mike to explain the technical side of it but it is something to do with IP re-routing. I wonder if it is a plugin you use on Chrome but not firefox? I'm not even sure there was plugins for that use but would explain why you get different results from different browsers using the same network. The admins (really Mike) are looking into the issue and we'd like to apologise that you seem to have been wrongly caught by some of the anti-spamming measures.

Ziggy's problem has also happened several times to me in recent weeks or even a month ago.  I'm fairly certain I have no viruses on my pc's either.  I definitely delete cookies frequently.

I think it might be the way you are being routed Kathy.  You could intermittently be being routed by a proxy server IP which has been banned due to a number of spammers operating through their servers.

I was thinking along those lines Mike and had looked at all my Chrome extensions - nothing there apart from the usual suspects plus since both browsers are on the same laptop - curiouser.  I can just use Firefox for now, thanks for your help.

Sorry about all this Ziggy :P

It's a bit odd to be honest. The ban logs appear to show attempts by you to access the forum from a US-based re-routing service IP and being denied, but I cannot actually see the IP in question as a banned entity - or any particuarly close to it or as part of a range. You most recent activity shows a far more local UK-based IP address. I would imagine any web browser you have available would now be able to access the forum without difficulty (unless something *very* odd is happening behind the scenes in Chrome for you)
