Thank you, done!

I imagine that I will still see a "new" icon in the thread listing if the ignored user posts into it, and I understand that that's probably unavoidable.

Depends how many times I post, I guess! ;)

A relative uses TalkTalk as their ISP. Whenever I visit, connection to NSF is ifffy; occasionally it connects, frequently it does not (see screen grab below). It's been like this for years. Most frustrating. Ideas anyone?

That's down to the ISP - and talktalk are rubbish - not us. We've had no outages in months.

Hi, when I try to access NSF from my phone I get the following message "Sorry tappa, you are banned from using this forum. This is a Spam Account. This Ban is not set to expire"

Can the Admins please help? I have been a member for many years & am usually a lurker & occasionally post a few articles etc. So not sure why I'm getting this message.

Please help!

I use them and haven't had anything like that in a while. It can be down to whole bunch of factors outside of your ISP's control including how far you are from your local telephone exchange.

Hey!

 So this obviously isn't you banned (not least because you wouldn't be able to post this), but you've managed to cross over into an IP address that was banned (a spammer). So it'll either never be a problem again as you move off that IP address or you need to tell me what IP address it is if it comes up again so that I can remove that banned IP address from the list.

But you're not banned.

Thanks Chris, that's a relief!! I did realize it must be some weird bug, else I would not have been able to post via my laptop.

Not sure if it is an IP problem, for the following reason.

My laptop & phone are both connected to the same WiFi network at home & office. While my phone occasionally moves to Data network. At both home & office I'm able to connect via my laptop but get this message when I connect from my phone (nexus 5, chrome browser). I checked on both phone & laptop the IP is the same 49.206.114.15.

I suspect if it could be due to cookies on my phone. I will update once I figure out how to clear cookies for NSF site on my phone browser.

49.206.114.15 isn't a banned IP address and what you managed to post the above post via!

You also recently logged in on a different IP address (also not banned). Also via "track user" in admin, I see a bunch of IP addresses (over 30 different ones) you've used in your history.

Baffling. You're clearly ok on the above IP you cited and another most recent one used, but that's a legit ban message. Your username isn't banned, your registered e-mail isn't banned and that IP address isn't banned!

I can only think you somehow got jumped into a different IP address that was banned. If it happens again, e-mail me at chrisbergin@nasaspaceflight.com and I'll hit your profile to see the latest IP address used and see if that's on the ban list and remove it from the list.

PS The ban list is only about 150 IP addresses, which is a ban we put on when a spammer hits us (stops them re-registering and hitting us again).

They are very far from the exchange; that'll be it most likely. Thanks.
