Same experience. But no problem, I thought, just find an admin and PM for a fix. ...Except couldn't PM either. So logged out and used the site contact form.
Got an almost instant reply from Cliff (thank you), who tweaked my account settings. So tried to post here as a test and...failure.
"We have marked much of your activity as suspicious, you cannot perform this function at this time."
Replied by external email that I was still being falsely targeted. (Real spammers must not win this battle!)
Cliff took some extra steps and...success!
The vast majority of similar forums are run by unpaid volunteers, both mods and admins, who serve for the love of the game. Gracious appreciation is in order, along with patience. Many thanks to those who give life to this site.
