Am I banned here?

Post by N4KVE » Mon Mar 19, 2018 3:29 pm

I tried logging on here from my I-Phone while away from home using my ATT data. I get a message saying I'm banned from the site. But once I got home, & my phone was on my WiFi, all is good. Also, my 2 home computers have no problem logging on to this site. So why would this site tell me I am banned if I try to log on from my phone while on data? GARY

I've had the same issue twice.

It usually resolves itself, but I dont know what causes it.

The first time I freaked out cause I had some BS&T deals going on and tried to call Nick until I was reminded that it was 3AM tomorrow where he was.

The next time I logged on, it was bidness as usual.

This afternoon I checked e/m and after opening one piece of mail I found that I was (banned). I closed out and logged back in,,,,,everything is fine. No problem w FSN at all. A correlation, I’m not sure, but don’t think so. Mav

I've seen that glitch before.

I had the same problem on my last iPhone when getting on FSN on the work WiFi. Banned due to IP address...then still banned on LTE for 24 hours...no ban when on the home WiFi within the 24 hours. Strange. New iPhone X and FSN works on the work WiFi and everywhere else. WTF

Probably a question of IP. I would not worry too much about it.

Same problem here. I believe it has to do with IP addresses from AT&T networks.
I was part of the SOLUTION, were YOU?

If any of you can get me the IPs that do this, I'd be glad to look into it.

Same here, but only off of certain towers it seems. I always seem to get the banned notice when I'm on my phone at my father-in-laws house.
Why would you want to give away any of your rights or freedoms? Just because one jack wagon doesn't have an elevator worth Andre 3000 doesn't mean that I should have my privileges taken away.
