    Couldn't get on at all for days

    About a week ago I couldn't post a reply again. It kept saying "not allowed on forum" or whatever the message is. I notice it does that when you try to include a quote, but if you just type something fresh with no quotes, it doesn't do that.

    Right after that, I couldn't get on the site at all, like Robbie experienced not long ago. It kept saying "cannot contact server." I tried this from two different computers, tried clearing the cache and cookies, and it did no good. I figured the site must be down, but now that I can get on again, it doesn't look like the posting stopped. Really odd. I didn't have that problem with any other site.

    Next time that happens, open up a command prompt and try "ipconfig /release" and then "ipconfig /renew".

    I was wondering where you went.

    Since Freak updated the site, i've been having a lot of issues as well.
    I can sign on, but it's back to freezing up, usually when i try & submit a post or response.
    Accessing my private messages is hit or miss (lately, it's miss).
    I use Chrome, since Internet Explorer never worked, but it seems the same issues keep arising.

    I couldn't get on again! I kept thinking it was a fluke that would go away, but I'm using a proxy server right now! For some reason the site seems to be rejecting my computer number or something. Firefox will say the server can't be contacted, but now through the proxy server, here I am. I tried the ipconfig release/renew thing, too, and it just reset my WiFi connnection. Amazingly I can post through this proxy server. I'm thinking this happens after I ban a spammer, somehow it's banning me, too, or something? Also sometimes if I quote somebody in my post, it will say I can't do that on this server. Jungle Drummer said that had happened to him, too.

    Must be a coincidence, or you had a virus.
    I don't think Freak has been on here, in a while.

    When it happened to me a few months back, the cable company ended up having to send a technician out with a new router. Damn computers.
