I currently have full access and I think I was the first to flag up I was banned.

I put it down to currently being based in Belgium so guessed I had a dodgy ISP.
Whatever you have done, has allowed me access, however as you said in your earlier post, this may also let in the spammers.

Best regards,

David

Indeed! But it's only a temporary measure, we're looking into how we can ban the spammers without it affect legit people! ;)

I think I've figured out the problem with the security thread... it looks like the permissions might be set wrong.

Just out of interest, can anyone access (or even post to the) "The Bar" forum at all? Or is it just the security thread? Please try and see if you can create a post/reply to any other threads in "The Bar" and report back.

If I'm right... we might be able to fix this!

Yes I can seem to post to the bar, something has changed for me even though I haven't been banned.....yet. I used to have to re log in every time I visited but I haven't re logged in for a few weeks now, its a positive for me but it may help with what's changed.

Forum has been updated, and the permissions have been updated for the security thread (i.e. the bar forum). Could you all please try again?

Thank you all for your patience, hopefully everything should be resolved now. :)

Looking into how we stop the spammers now ;)
