Since the problems began I can only access BG using TOR browser.

Today something weird happened. I logged in as usual, went to "replies to your posts" and opened each in a new tab (4 total).

Then I all 4 tabs showed me logged out and a small window stating

Sorry The Bullet, you are banned from using this forum!

I restarted Tor I am.

Can anyone guess what has caused this?

If brute force does not´re not using enough of it.

At a guess, I'd say that you hit a Tor endpoint whose IP address was on the ban list. We don't normally ban IP addresses, but there have been a few troublesome ones, and we have no procedure for unbanning them.

This issue should now be fixed. I have amended the ban triggers.
