    What Happened...

    When I tried to look at the forums yesterday, I got a screen saying....

    vBulletin Message
    You have been banned for the following reason:
    No reason was specified

    Date the ban will be lifted: Never

    When I went back to it later, I saw...….

    Certificate error.....

    This site is not secure.
    This might mean that someone's trying to fool you
    or steal and info you send to the server. You should
    close this site immediately.


    This same exact thing happened back in 2012......Is somebody hacking this site????
    If your opinion differs from mine, ..........Too bad.
    .
    How would you like it if Hitler killed you
    Dogbert.

    Yours sounded worse than mine. Mine said "... been blocked from posting... your account may have been removed by a moderator..."
    This same exact thing happened back in 2012......Is somebody hacking this site????
    Then earlier this morning, I saw at least 3 spam posts on this section which have been removed.

    Just when you thought it's safe...

    I encounter 502 access errors quite frequently when trying to access this site.

    At least over on MTBR they were nice enough to post what was happening and set their site to Read Only.

    Glad to see this topic.
    I'm fairly new here and yesterday when I wanted to read the forums, I got the same response as #5 above. lol, was worried I did something wrong with registration, so sent an email to get my account straightened out.

    Did they at least give out partial "refund"? I once ordered a pizza and they somehow burnt it so I had to wait extra 15 minutes. They finally gave me one and waived the payment. I thought it was fair.

    Yes. I got all of my original investment back.

    Something about little Chinese girls in bikinis on the Podium Girls forum. It was all just a big misunderstanding.

    Ahhh, back to the days when men (and possibly some women) could be pigs here. I'm certain I took a shot from the mods back then.

    I can neither confirm nor deny that the PG forum led to my being banned for three days. “Nudity” is quite subjective apparently. Or so I’m told.

    You know, I'm beginning to think it was an ingenious way to get rid of true trolls. Just think; a troll logs on to do his nightly trolling, sees that he's been banned and figures that the jig is up so he goes elsewhere to troll?

    so, all kidding aside...

    the site has a melt-down, people are banned and blocked from logging in, and now page loads are ridiculously slow.

    and the owners can't be bothered to issue any kind of explanation....?

    And login on mobile outright doesn't work anymore. Once you pass the damned captcha the login-button doesn't work.
