Message from Forum Administrator:
Thanks for contacting me. Be assured that you have not been banned! The
message was caused by a technical error.
*Sequence of events:
- The ip address of the forum was being forwarded by a NAT migration
server of the hosting company to a new server. From the forum point of
view every request originated from this NAT IP address.
- I banned a spammer this morning but the stored IP address of that
spammer was actually the IP address of the NAT migration server.
- The spam system now blocked everyone because everyone is visiting the
forum via this NAT server.
- The problem was fixed by pointing the forum.openstreetmap.org DNS to
the correct IP address.*
I’m sorry for any inconvenience.
