    if you get 'banned' from a website.. is there any way to get around that?

    -was banned from a 'private community' website
    -could easily get back on using a proxy like TorBrowser
    -only problem is can't have 'IP address' being different every time

    i have a MacBook Pro w/OSX Mavericks 10.9.5, connecting to internet using an Apple Time Capsule 2TB..

    when you get 'banned' from a website.. do they typically 'ban' you based on a physical, unchangeable "IP Address" or something that I can 'refresh' in my settings to get a new IP address like it never happened?

    please advise! thanks!!

    Use a similar web site, and don't be a jerk this time.

    Seriously, if an admin wants to keep you off a site, they can. You can probably defeat the standard measures taken, but if they really don't like you, they have other tricks.

    There are ways to block almost anyone. That said, the best way is to either sign up again as a new user or contact the admin and see if they will unblock you. Usually websites will not block a whole IP address from joining, but specific users. If the user makes enough accounts and continues to get banned they can/will block the IP.

    I would contact the admin and see if they will unblock you. That is the most reasonable way to join again, if they have a private community and do not want you to be a part of it any longer then why bother them?

    No forum that I've ever poked around in has that.

    I use a forum where, if the original poster deletes his opening post, it deletes the thread/topic.
