    I just got a weird error when loading the forms. It said my IP has been banned, but I was able to login still.

    You don't have any replies because your IP has been banned.

    We put some caching in place leading up to the event to help with the load. Only thing I can think of is that something happened with that to briefly confuse your IP with someone else's. Not sure.

    I had that happen to me yesterday on a DSL connection and briefly thought "great, now my ISP has done something so careless with its gear that I'm banned from the "real" internet... " -- until I remembered having read this thread earlier.

    Glad it was here when I happened to read it. :) Otherwise I might have called my provider's customer service to read them a (possibly) undeserved riot act. :eek:

    Same thing happened to me yesterday. After I dried my tears, I found this thread. Good to know it's an occasional, quick sting for everyone.

    EDIT Oct. 3, 2016 : it's happened 3 times today on different device types.
