VPN no your a spam bot


It’s interesting how when trying to view this site thru PIA vpn services your considered a spam bot, and therefore blacklisted from ever gaining entry to this site. Oh well….

    I've had no problems using expressvpn.

    (Plus it works with Netflix)

    A spammer was probably using that VPN server to spam this site.

    One of the downsides of a VPN, which I generally support as a user, is that spammers can use them to bypass blocks.

    We ban lots of spammers but then they use a VPN to bypass it, that gets blocked as well...it's a tough cat and mouse game.

    Not a tech question just a observation, but does your field guide explain how to set up vpns in windows 10 per app or browser instead of across the whole OS?

      Considering that's an application question, specifically an application that doesn't come with Windows, I'm wondering why that would be in a Windows guide.

    But here is a kicker use firefox same vpn same address, and I pass by the spambot filter.

    It's common because a lot of users use VPNs for spamming etc so many of these IPs are blacklisted.
