I just wanted to post this really, to shed a bit of light on this..
i recieved a 2 day ban a while back, but my ban was only apparent in firefox, in IE i could correctly view the forums..
I take it that the Bans arent IP based ? if they were surely i wouldnt have been able to access the site.
Any info on this, no ban is really a ban, if you can still view the forums, alas, you cant post, but i thought banned meant banned.
