Hi, you might have seen this error while trying to visit the forums in the last few hours. This error was caused by an anti-spam add-on that I had installed here a long time. Something triggered the add-on and it caused all IPs to be blocked. The issue is now resolved and the forums are back to normal. Sorry about the interruption.

Special thanks to our tech expert @MattW from https://mattwservices.co.uk/ and to those who reported this issue via Facebook and emails.

This should all be fixed now. The required module has been re-installed so the webserver is seeing the correct IP addresses for members.
Thank you again to our CFS hero MattW. He has been here helping us out whenever we had technical issues with the forum and server. So happy to have known you. :)

If you have a VPS that needs to be managed, I highly recommend MattW for all your tech needs.
