Why ban the captain??

Postby Capnkirk1 » Fri Jul 22, 2005 6:58 pm

Yeah..for some reason i got BANNED.

Alright, when im on my laptop (windows xp) It tells me that im under a blacklisted proxy (which is weird because ive never used a proxy on there before)

Now im on my desktop (linux) and its telling me im flat out BANNED.

Anyone care to help me out on this matter??

Chances are you, like most people, use a provider that provides a dynamic IP and at some point time, some user's machine was found to be compromised. In any case, most of them will refer you to a website that gives you more information like when it was placed in a blacklist and for what. Personally I think blacklists are a necessary evil. Good luck.
