    Getting "Un-Banned" From a Message Board.

    I was banned from an Blog /message board for arguing politics

    I can see the page, but none of the threads / messages. I can't log in. I have total access when using another computer (traveling this week on business), so I believe the moderators have blocked my home IP addy - is that possible?

    In the past I could delete cookies, clear cache and join with a different handle. This time it's different.

    Is it possible to get my ISP to do something - can I get a different IP Addy? Can they block my MAC Addy? Any help - thanks

    Hope I don't give any ideas to lurking banned Hawkeyes

    Why would you want to try so hard to be somewhere you aren't wanted?

    LOL - It's more about the moderator, not the participants; we all get along great !

    Hey, when I was banned from CN I saw it as a blessing in disguise... I just want the $50 they charged me for five months after I cancelled my subscription...

    Actually; I find your contributions here positive and it's not bad to have an opinion from the 'other side'.

    I believe there are ways to refresh your IP, but I'm not entirely sure how to do this. I know at schools like ISU, you almost have to ban by username, and just keep banning, because of the always changing IPs.

    Awesome response. The best thing for a board to do is like South Florida did with their Rivals board last year when Hawk fans crashed it after "Black Tuesday" on HROT, they took the whole message board down and it hasn't returned. Now that's keeping people out. lol

    Thanks - that's an idea, but I was wondering if I had to download software, or if there's a Proxy Server (for free of course). Know of a good one?

    Most of the popular ones I heard about were for LINUX systems.
