    It was likely that in the past someone who wished to do harm to the forum created an account using that IP address and it was added to our banned IP list.

    As most IP addresses are dynamic (meaning they change each time your modem reconnects) it is possible that you got given an IP that was on the list. If you know the IP address or the date & time you attempted to connect, you can PM me and I will see if I can find it and remove it from the list.

    The ban only affects that particular IP (AKA IP ban) had you actually been properly banned your account would have been locked out, removing your ability to log in, post, etc.
