Anyone else venture over there from time to time? There's not a whole lot of activity compared to here, but I was going to see if there was anything new today. I went to the site and got a message saying my IP address has been permanently banned! Can anyone else take a look and see if they get the same message? I noticed quite a few spam postings in the last week, so I'm wondering if they booted me accidentally or just did a mass purge and will start over.

I got the same message. I haven't been to that site in years and never posted.

There have been some good discussion there, but for the most part it's not real exciting. Good to know it's not just me that got banned!

Also permanently banned.

Probably an error. Or else they are linking your cross-Internet data, figuring out you're well past college age and banning you all.

Think of all the Viagra and Cialis ad money they'd be throwing away!

Looks like the site is back up now, anyway, so nothing more to see here...

Went there this AM, and found several college age people were also complaining. This was the moderators response:

Hello Everyone,

We seemed to have experienced a technical issue with our message boards yesterday, thus the reason for the "permanently banned" message. We are currently in the process of investigating the cause, but more importantly we were able to restore access to the site as soon as we can.

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your continued support and patronage.
