If you put in place a "the first N messages new users post must be moderator approved", I'd volunteer to be a moderator and would be happy to help.
Thanks! I've added you as a moderator
Just to note publicly, I only intend use my moderation privilege to remove spam and approve new user posts.

The rest of us should be able to handle the modest volume easily enough. When I was in your place I was pretty much left alone here at night, so since I have experience with this sort of thing I started moderating as well. I can definitely see why you'd rather avoid that.

Re: New Site Update Bans lots of IPs

I’ve been banned for months now, from home. I can still access the site from work or mobile, but I work from home most of the time and my employer has our vpn client setup in such a way that most non-work traffic bypasses the vpn (goes straight to the Internet) so I’m blocked at home regardless of whether I’m vpn’ing or not.

The CIDRAM access denied message has a signatures reference of “38.0.0.0/8” which I think means that any IP address starting with 38 is blocked. (That’s about 16 million addresses blocked in one fell swoop!) My own address is 38.109.215.x, which is a subnet of a small rural ISP here in Colorado.

Sure would be nice to be able to use the site from home again Is there anything that could be done to fix this? I would certainly appreciate it!

Thanks!

Jeff

Use the site's contact form to email Mike, and he should be able to fix it.

No problem. It may take a few days for him to see the email and implement the change.
