    Hi all. Since two weeks, I've got the following when I surf to TSG

    This is when my IP begins with 80.xxx.
    I live in Belgium (Europe, you know, Belgian chocolate :D) and my ISP gives me sometimes IP beginning with 80 or 217. When it begins with 217, no problem at all, I can reach TSG forums, post replies.
    When it begins with 80, I'm banned ? What's going on here ?

    Sounds like someone near you has been banned from TSG, you might just have to wait and see if Mike or Candy can unban that IP.

    Sounds like you're lucky enough to be in the 80.200 or 80.201 block... we had some kids from there giving us a hard time. I just removed that restriction, so you should be good to go now. :)

    Hi Michael, thank you for your answer. I was not able to determine exactly what was the problem actually but since I could sometimes connect, I have been looking closely to my IP and so, I've seen that the problem was in the range 80.xxx
    Thanks for solving this "problem", I didnt' know that some people are banned.

    BTW, Belgium is also the country of great tenniswomen, the #1 and #2 at the WTA are Belgian girls. :D
