    Hello,
    I think I'm being blocked from a website because of my IP address (I'm not a spammer or other terror, I just didn't read the rules properly before I posted something).
    Can a IP release/IP renew command work for something like this? I'd try it but I just know I'd mess something up.

    The short answer is "No."

    How do you connect to the net? If you have a static IP, no matter how many times you release/renew, it's going to be the same.

    If you're on a dialup, your IP changes (the last group of numbers, anyway) every time you connect.

    Generally, site bans take dynamic (changing) IPs into account and even if the last numbers of your IP change, you will still be unable to access the site.

    Your best bet is to appeal your ban to the site's owners.

    Thanks,
    That's what I needed to know.
    I'll try to "plead my case" to the owners of the site.

    Jamie.
