    Is there something wrong? Lockouts/ New SPAM Issue

    Hi guys

    Yesterday whilst making a post with several pictures in it, the forum told me that it looked like I was trying to post SPAM and refused the post. Being the stubborn sort, I tried again (maybe three or four times) before I engaged brain. I then tried to post a shorter, picture-free post and that got refused with a "the forum won't allow posts too frequently, please try later" message. A couple of hours later it let me post, and all was well.

    For me, at least.

    JimC64 tried to post (a relatively innocuous weather post) in his "March 20th Invasion Tour" thread, and got locked out in a similar manner to me. He - unfortunately - hasn't been able to get back in to post, it appears that the forum has successfully perma-banned him. This appears erroneous to the untrained eye.

    I can't help but think that this may not be restricted to just Jim.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    (PS - I am subscribed to Jim's thread, and I have had fourteen notifications of his post - I don't know if others have had the same notifications)

    Edit: Without wishing to be pushy, I am also PM'ing this message to IanD and Administrator "for information".

    Not fixed, man. It's totally wrecking my 'forum experience'. I literally have to write something on the forum, copy and paste it to a word doc and then try copy and pasting it back or I'll risk loosing the lot! Like the hours worth I lost last night!

    I'm hitting Spam gates, re-post time gates, forbidden gates (whatever that is).... it's a proper nightmare! Please wait a few minutes it says! More like a few hours!
