    I tried to login to my user CP yesterday and got a message along the lines of
    "Sorry. Your IP has been banned. Please contact an administrator"

    I didn't do anything to deserve this, so I'm guessing it must be a system glitch with all the recent attacks.

    I'm logging in using a proxy now. I would have PMed an admin about this, but every time I try to send a PM I end up getting the same IP-ban message and the PM doesn't get sent.

    Anyone else have the same problem?

    I had a similar problem, but instead it was two lines writing which were saying something about errors. Like _____ exception or something.

    I used a proxy and it worked so must have been a glitch to my ip?

    I got the error message you said as well when opening the BHW homepage, but I didn't get it when trying to access inside pages.

    Hoping an admin will see this thread.

    I randomly get the service unavailable message. I'm usually pretty paranoid but with that I know that it's just a problem they're having with the website. What does suck though is that they require cookies and if you don't enable cookies and dont login you get a page where you have to click that you agree with their little agreement and it has a javascript timer button that doesnt always start timing and isnt always enabled. Thank goodness for javascript injections.
