Spamhaus Blacklisting Issues

Post by messydesk » Thu Nov 03, 2022 6:25 pm

One of the features of the phpBB platform is that it verifies that your IP address is not one used for spam by using the website. I've had reports from 2 users in the UK in as many days that their IP addresses have become blacklisted, but their addresses come up clean when checking In short, it's not you, it's phpBB. Since user accounts are screened for spam threats at the time I approve them, I've disabled the IP address checking. If you've been blocked, you should now be able to post to the forum.

This happened to me yesterday when I tried to post into a thread. I waited a few minutes (reaching out to John Coxe), didn't use the link that was auto-provided, and then tried again. It worked perfectly like there had never been any problem.
When in doubt... don't.

It happened to me today also.
Tried to post from my phone and my computer and both attempts were blocked.

@messydesk thanks for your help. I'm using this as a test to see if your actions are stronger than me still being on their blacklist (as I currently still am). I don't mind being a deviant but only when it's fun - they've made this quite the opposite. Warm regards from a chilly UK.
