So when I tried to browse today it said that my IP address had been banned.. and only when I logged in could I access the forums etc..

does anyone know why this would happen? Not sure if it's random, or if I did/said something?

nevermind.. the problem has fixed itself. :)

I just wanted to bump this and say the same thing happened to me - any idea why?

It's happened to me if I'm on a public wifi like Starbucks or Panera. I wonder if some spam has been posted from those places and they get blocked without 3FC knowing it's a public wifi and not a home one.

Hmm - that might be it. I'm usually at work when I access it.

It happened to me right now, but I was able to login then with no problem.

I could also be cached pages being served, I think that has happened in the past with that error message.
