A strange thing happened to me today

Post by Ezzra » Tue Nov 21, 2017 10:23 pm

I was in the Holland House hotel in Cardiff.

I tried to log onto the forum for a peek and get a message to the effect that I have been banned from the forum and 'my' (presumably the hotel's) IP address has been banned.

Strange thing to 'ban' a hotel's IP address!

I have to assume someone was acting a dick, when staying in that hotel previously. There's always one humourless douche-nozzle who has to spoil things for everyone else. :(

I’d just like to clarify I’ve never stayed in Cardiff lol

Or used a douche nozzle.


Ok one those above is a lie.


In a similar vein, I tethered off a mates iPhone a few months ago as I’d run out of data and found I’d been banned. AGAIN.

Luckily before I started throwing dummies and toys about, Tommo asked me if I was tethering which might explain the ban.


* Although I did have to quickly email admin asking them to ignore my previous email lol

I’ve had that - without leaving the house.
Or swapping WiFi.
Or using 4G

Perhaps you're right Marco. Just seemed weird :)
