Hi, I'm having a problem on my PC (OS X, Chrome, happy to provide more details) - I can visit any part of the site, but when I click on the "forums" tabs I get a "Boris Badenov you have been banned. This ban is not set to expire." message.

I can access the forums from my phone...and strangely when I log out on my PC I still get the same message..."Guest you have been banned..."

Ideas? Are the forum gods angry with me? (Or my computer but not my phone)?

Thanks in advance.

(And sorry for the spam to everyone else...if there's a better way to do this let me know).

Probably a glitch, I had that once.

Are you in a dorm, or somewhere with public wifi access?  Do roommates / family members read the site?

Did the ban message have any more details?

I have had this happen on my phone before. I experienced this problem when I was on vacation in Orlando. When I changed my network, as going from cell to wifi, the problem stopped. There may be a chance that the network you are currently on is banned for some reason.

This means it's likely an IP ban tied to whichever network you're using to access the site.

A roommate of yours make the mods angry, perhaps?  :P

Yes, I'm on the road. Hotel wifi. Sorry, I should have mentioned that.

It's just me, but I use multiple devices.

The IP ban makes sense I guess since even guests are banned, and I can use my phone.

Thanks, I'll suffer on the small screen I guess for a while. Haha.

Ok, I'm having the same problem.  It started when I was out of state on business using a hotel rooms free wifi on my cell phone. 

Now im back home and it's still saying I'm banned on my phone, even if I'm at home using my own wifi on my phone.

If I hop on my laptop, everythings fine.  Very frustrating.

You can get get a new router. Your ISP will assign a new IP to you since it will see a new MAC address which hasn't been assigned an IP.

You can also go into the gateway of your router. Go to the section of the router and choose manual MAC address. Change one letter and apply. Your ISP will assign another IP.

The second method you don't have to buy a new router.

If it's an iPhone go to settings general and then reset. Choose reset network settings. You should get a new IP from your carrier or remove whatever got tagged.

Should fix that.

Edit.

You might have to clear the cache after you do that.

The site being pulled up from your carrier service is probably caching or putting something on to block you so that's why it's happening on wifi also.

I know this is a popular sports site, but I feel like something else is behind this other than individuals being banned at different IP addresses across the country. This has happened to me on my iPhone in two different small restaurants in Pittsburgh suburbs since I've joined CB. It seems rather unlikely to me that two different people were banned from Celticsblog in small restaurants in the suburbs of Pittsburgh. Am I misunderstanding something or is that supposedly the reason behind this?
