I tried to create an account, but it states my IP Address is banned and will not let me continue. Why?
This ban may or may not target you, mainly this ban exists because of a very abusive individual or small group of individuals who have repeatedly created accounts in order to harass and abuse our members and the site in general. In order to stop this behavior we were forced to prevent new account creation by anyone using that particular IP range or service provider.
