This is what I saw when I tried to access the forum 10 minutes ago. I am deeply insulted.

Hi Ron. We're having some technical issues with the forum this morning which are causing some users to intermittently see the IP ban message you were seeing. We're looking into this now.

Just had exactly the same response from the this forum, and decided to reboot my router. Thank heavens for dynamic IP addresses!

Brought back horrible memories of when I really WAS banned by a former sysop, for (hopefully long-since-healed) differences with one other, current, active user!

Yeah, don't get complacent. I wonder if they thought it was fixed and went home.

Would someone from MakeMusic please comment on this? Very frustrating.

Hi Motet,

I agree, it is frustrating. Along with deploying Finale today, we worked to restore functionality to the forums.
As forum users are still being intermittent banned, we will continue to work to address the problem.

Thank you.

It's probably not necessary to ban the spammers, if that helps--it's likely a drive-by thing.

Seriously? You were "deeply insulted" from an accidental tech glitch that banned most users? Wow lol.

Anyway, meanwhile in the real world :) I do look forward to see how the new Community forum fares against this old-school tried-and-tested forum. Any guesses?

I did not know at that time that it was a general wide-spread problem. So, yes, my first reaction when I got the "you have been banned" message was one of indignation and insult.

I too run a forum and can ban individual IP addresses--and it has never gone berzerk and banned large groups wholesale like this.
