FortKnox's Journal: I've been banned... 13

Journal by FortKnox
That's right folks. With 42 Karma, I've been banned:

Due to excessive bad posting from this IP or Subnet, comment posting has temporarily been disabled. If it's you, consider this a chance to sit in the timeout corner. If it's someone else, this is a chance to hunt them down. If you think this is unfair, please email with your MD5'd IPID and SubnetID, which are " (ed. note: removed) " and " (ed. note: removed) " and (optionally, but preferably) your IP number " (ed. note: removed) " and your username "FortKnox".

Update: I tried anonymously. Yep, still says username "FortKnox". So much for YRO.

Update2: Now it works without any upmod? Wierd...

  • I've had this happen at work a couple times. I emailed pater and he sent me back some info once. All of our company (30,000+ employees) go through our proxy server and show up as the same IP. All it takes is for 5 posts to get modded down in some short time (I think 24 hrs?) and /. automatically blocks that IP from posting.

    I wouldn't take it personally unless you are the only one posting from your IP.
    • Oh, I didn't see the the bit about and your username "FortKnox".

      Did you try to log all the way out (as opposed to checking 'post anonymously'?

      BTW, how are you able to post to your journal if you're banned?
      • I am the only person on this IP, and I did log all the way out.

        Writing journal entries doesn't seem to be affected by IP ban (trolls do it all the time).
        • What the hell?

          Slow Down Cowboy!

          Slashdot requires you to wait 20 seconds between hitting 'reply' and submitting a comment.

          It's been 18 seconds since you hit 'reply'!
  • if so, try generating a new IP.
  • I've been banned several times. enjoy it!
  • lamers quote their karma. it doesnt show that you are a good poster, just that you are a good poser.

    public proxy, it will look like you are from another IP
