VPN bannings

Probably due to someone abusing the board Slyck is currently banning quite a few IP addresses associated with VPN providers.

May I suggest that after a period of time ( to be determined by the forum operators) that IP blocks are purged please?

A lot of Slyck's users will be privacy conscious and the blocking of VPN and TOR ranges for long periods sends the wrong message and will stay in place long after their usefulness expires.

I tried 6 IP addresses earlier, all banned. Don't want to get into the same situation as Peerblock who ban everything forever :roll:

checking the age of a ban in phpbb ranges from problematic to impossible.

if u want to PM the addresses involved to me, i can look into it.

ps: didn't realize TOR had address blocks now ;)

Sorry I took so long to come back that my IP addresses have cycled I think

Either way i'm no longer blocked

Thanks for the response anyway
