The website has been under a sustained attack for several weeks now and that as a result we’ve been forced to implement stricter measures to block the would-be infiltrators.
This includes banning IP addresses that rack up too many failed
login attempts, so legitimate Forum users should be careful not to
mistype their usernames or passwords, and that if they do do so and
find themselves unable to access the website, they should get in touch
with us to get unblocked.
