Sorry for the ban mistake....
« on: December 28, 2018, 06:33:19 PM »
Recently, the forum was under serious attack by spamming groups from Russia & Ukraine. They are even using VPNs and bogus made up emails to infiltrate. This has been going on for almost 3 weeks straight. It started out a hand full but hit hundreds in a day. They declared war on me for fighting them. I had to resort to blocking whole IP blocks and domains to slow them down. I was just informed that I accidentally blocked members. I tried to make sure that didn't happen but I messed up on 1 IP block that did it. I'm very sorry that happened and just removed that block. If there is still anyone that I unintentionally blocked, please let me know so I can rectify that. Now I understand the hard work and frustration that Lee had to deal with. Thank you for your understanding and help. God Bless.......
Thank you...God Bless...

Thanks Steve,

I was wonder what I did wrong...   ha ha.

We just relocated permanently to our Phills address last month,  I thought maybe the different IP triggered it.

Happy New Years. To give an update, I found a way to block the spammers at least for now. I just want to make sure our regular members can still get on and I didn't accidentally ban anyone again. If you got on here ok, do a quick post and let me know. If you hear from a fellow member who is blocked let me know about that too. TY. God Bless....
Thank you...God Bless...
