    I'm going to be experimenting

    With spam controls, user settings, and a number of other things over the coming weeks.

    Please, PLEASE use the spam report button if you see spam, so that I can remove and monitor it.

    Also, you can use the report post button to report those members of the community who are not being excellent to other community members. It's hard to believe such people exist, but there we have it.

    cheers,
    -jim

    I have had a brief-but-intense inner struggle about whether I should report this thread,
    but I have emerged the victory and am stronger for it. Now, it's time for hunting robots.

    Me specifically? Dream on, chump. It would take an awfully Big Robot to hunt me.

    I cannot even enter the main site:

    Access has been blocked.

    Your IP [xx.xx.xxx.xx] is found at Project Honey Pot .
    If you feel this is incorrect please contact them.

    It would be nice if my IP wasn´t dynamic, so who knows when or who used it to spam :(

    Well, I have a static IP and cannot comment anymore. It also tells me I'm trying to be outsmart the system(?).

    JP1138, can you get a new IP from your ISP? If not, whitelist it at the project honeypot website.

    http://www.projecthoneypot.org/white_list.php

    You can first look and see if its blocked and for what reason. I looked up my IP at honeypot and project stop forum spam, and im not blocked at either. So I have no idea why I'm blocked at RPS! Are you guys keeping your own blacklist?

    EDIT: The plugins checks the following:

    eatures

    • PHP 5 is required.
    • The visitor's IP can be checked at the following third parties:


    So you can check all those links and see if your blocked. They all have links on the website. I am not blocked in any of those. So if you all else fails then it may be a local RPS problem.

    I tried something else, that is disabling all the addons in firefox, namely:

    DNT(Do Not Track)
    Ghostery
    Adblock+
    NoScript

    This didnt have any effect.

    I also tried making a new account for RPS, but this didnt have any effect, same results(still blocked). I also tried a proxy I use (anonymouse.org) but that didnt have any effect either, some spammer must have used it, and it has also been blocked. All I can think of now is some sort of internal blacklist that is being used that blocks on IP, but still allows the content to be served up.

    Anybody have any bright idea's?

    pepper, I managed to get a new IP after turning off the router for some minutes. Regarding your problem, I suppose the only way would be if some moderator/site admin dropped by this thread.
