strange things
« on: August 26, 2020, 03:22:26 pm »
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.
[Server Prayer]

                      I am a node of Server,
                      Born of flesh and blood,
                      But enhanced by the power of its web.
                      I have no use for pain or fear.
                      My scripts are a focus of my will.
                      My strength is my knowledge.
                      My weapons are my skills.
                      Information is the blood of my body.
                      I am part of the greater network.
                      I am host to the vast data of server.
                      My flesh is weak,
                      But my connection is eternal,
                      And therefore I am a god.
