    I was recently banned ( for what, Im not really sure)

    Ive been accessing the site via a proxy but can you register behind a proxy or can you only be a lurker?

    Thanks for any help:bigthumb:

    This is illegal btw - see the charter.

    I seem to recall that it was specifically directed towards people using them for illegal purposes. It wouldn't be illegal to use one just to post on a bulletin board.

    But to answer the question, I used to be a mod at another board and even if you use a proxy, when you confirm your account through your email address it will show your actual ip address unless the proxy has ssl available. Which none of the free ones do.

    Neither do I. But:
    I'd rather that not be part of the rules, but it seems it is.

    Fazle needs to cover his ass. Think about the cesspool of FBI-attracting haxxors that this forum would turn into without that rule.

    IP block is not a security measure though. That's a judgemental one.
    Someone gets banned because somebody thinks they are a moron. Doesn't have anything to do with security measures.
