Title: Can't log in from Firefox
Post by: bandit957 on September 10, 2021, 06:12:51 PM
I'm no longer able to log in to this forum using Firefox. (Right now I'm using poopy ol' Edge.) It says I'm banned. But the weird thing is that it says, "Sorry bandit73, you are banned from using this forum!" This is weird because my screen name is bandit957, not bandit73.

Well, maybe you should try logging in with bandit957 instead of bandit73.  :-P

I can't. No matter what I do, the same thing happens.

At one point, I guess we had a bunch of spammers registering with *@*.info email addresses (like your bandit73 account used—nice domain name, by the way :D), and one of us issued a global ban on accounts using those email addresses. Looks like today you happened to get the same IP address as you did when you were on bandit73, so it triggered the ban. I have lifted the ban, so you should be able to post normally.

Also, Tim, I'm guessing you don't have access to the bandit73 account any longer? Do you want us to just merge that account into bandit957 (assuming there's no technical reason we can't)?

Yes. I abandoned my bandit73 account back around 2013 because for some reason it didn't work anymore.

Logged in from Firefox fine here (macOS and Linux).
