The fact that my wife and I have been subject to an ip ban out of the blue suggests that nobody in authority here actually has any idea who is responsible, despite repeated claims to the contrary.

Good job there's such a thing as mobile data, isn't it?
Pretty sure it's just coincidence. It not the first time that's happened to you, and you (and your missus) were under no suspicion at all.

OTBC? IP Blocking? Server? Are these the new Marvel heroes? Anyway, with the Forum's ultra "Mr Special Needs" in all things technological, you are quite safe with me!

Indeed, and he wasn't the only one affected. But it's just as likely that the IP ban was a result of one of the other dupe accounts that DB creates to post his amusing stuff from time to time being OTBC'd...

Shocking!

How can poor Tarquin be rested for his Viola recital if he is woken at all hours by a SWAT team?

Those sort of things shouldn't happen in St Johns Wood.
