    Thank god this is a known issue, I am seeing this also when not on a vpn, and I was so confused since I’ve been using my work computer I got on Monday and I have not been on any potential “dangerous” sites etc

    It's getting worse for me, more often. It even did it from simply pressing Reply on a thread.

    Happening to me if I'm on my home network but works if I use my cell data instead.

    I had it earlier today as well, both on my android phone and my laptop. After several times of reloading the page on my laptop it was gone.

    I also tried obtaining a new IP address by disconnecting my router from the electricity and re-connecting, but it gave me the same IP address I had before. Is there any other way I can renew my IP address?

    Still having this issue, along with a handful of others, intermittently.

    EDIT: and I just got logged out while typing that, and then logged out during the process of being logged in...

    Same here. I'm mostly using a mobile connection. Turning the adblock app (DNS66, which acts as a VPN to block hosts) off seems to do the job for now, but I'm unsure if it won't block me again because I could enter for a bit yesterday as well before it stopped working again.

    Still getting this intermittently on Safari, no problems on Chrome. I am running an adblock on Safari, could that be it?

    I haven't been able to connect for more than a day - The same spambot message on my home wifi and using mobile data. I've never been able to get through it at all. None of this "it works in 10 minutes". Just straight up completely cannot connect from either of those IPs. I'm only here now via Tor.

    At least it's not just me eh?

    I've thought about this problem, and the only conclusion I could come up with is that I am a spam bot. There's no other sensible explanation. My life has been a lie.

    This looks like a configuration issue with whatever SS.org is using to block spambots (built into the forum software?). Probably picking up the IP address of the reverse proxy/CDN (SS.org uses Cloudflare) instead of the actual client IP and blocking that, which would result in everyone (or at least everyone in a particular region).
