Banned from forums?

Not sure if anybody else is getting this message. I only get it when I visit the website from my PC. Phone still allows me to view the forums.

sorry about that @Tomhille - there may be an IP or host ban that conflicts with your home's IP

I cleared a few recent IP bans, please try again.
If you are still banned, please send me your IP so I can find the appropriate ban.

To find your IP, simply go to google and type "what is my IP" - your IP will be right there at the top of the results. It will be a 4 part number, like 69.420.666.111 (except no number will go higher than 255)

Well, I didn't find that IP in any bans...
It's most likely a hostname ban, and those are harder to dig up.
Can you tell me who your internet provider is?

I actually received a "ban" notice (error 2211) on the app, but am still able to login from the desk. Hmm.

Troy, I tried clearing the cookies but still get the ban notice. No big deal. I will just use my phone.
