    Default IP Address being banned due to being overseas..

    Hey guys. My name is Adam Jefferson and I am currently working in Afghanistan. Due to me being overseas I'm sure our internet has some crazy IP address and when I try too access the forums page it say "the administrator has banned your IP address". The only reason I am able to post this is because if I reload the page like 100 times it sometimes will let me through. I have wrote two messages to the Admin, but with nothing. Could someone please help me out with this. I thoroughly enjoy visiting this page, looking at boats and learning something new. If someone could get ahold of the admin and see if there is a way to not ban my IP address that would be awesome. Thanks guys.

    No one knows who the Admin is on this forum is?

    The admin is not as active on the site as the moderators are. While I don't know the admin personally I know that a few of the other moderators do and I would think that one of them would reach out to him. Even then, it is not a fast response time from the admin. That being said, you haven't been blocked or banned as a spammer evidenced by you still being able to post here so at least that is some good news. Stay tuned though and we will see what if anything can be done about this.

    Hey Jetlink I appreciate your help. I can get on here only if I refresh the page like 20 or 30 times. Do to my IP address being an overseas address I do think it is throwing up red flags as a spammer. Obviously I'm not a spammer. Just another Supra boat enthusiast. Again thank you for your help.

    Do me a favor, next time you get the message, can you grab a screen shot by any chance and post it here so I can see exactly what it is telling you? If not, copy it word for word and write the reply here.
