yes, some people get on a posting spree. I can definitely relate Big Grin

We were essentially given a choice by our hosts to either beef up our security beyond reason or they were going to shut us down. We didn't know the security upgrade would be causing such issues, but it's better than the community disappearing completely, no?

yes, it seems unfortunate that this was the outcome. The security is affecting many users from their home IP's (definitely not proxy, and definitely not spam), and I am sure (as Horuseus already mentioned) that many casual users will just give up if they find the site blocked, and have no real recourse to correct it (after all, they can't access the site to see this sort of information etc).

the people who love the site and find themselves blocked while using a 'normal IP address' will persist, and try on their work computer, or their phone, or a different browser etc, and there have been more than one or two instances of this, as this thread attests. That is just the tip of the iceberg though. The 'average user' will just walk away, shrug their shoulders, and think this site is down or poorly managed.
