    I keep getting a message that some kind of "activity" has been detected from my IP address and it refuses to let me back on - a few minutes later I can go back on with no issues. Just me? My crap been hacked?

    Haven't seen it from here, and no indications associated with your profile through the admin functions. Wondering if it has something to do with your ISP? I just checked all the server and error logs, nothing shows up against you.

    Same here. In fact, here it is. I chose to close the window and walk away.

    Maybe someone is trying to hack in for some reason, and some tighter constraints have been enabled. But who would, really I guess.

    Imunify 360 just stopped me mid stream and asked if I was a robot- again. 1/10/19 at 10:33 am Central time. Would not let me back in until I checked the box for not a robot.

    Y'all a bunch of Transformers is what.

    And by the way I never got my donator tag. I said I didn't need it, but it shows I didn't lie, anyway.

    It's happened to me about a half dozen times or more, thought it was just me, did like Sean and walked, except once and had to pick some storefronts to prove that I wasn't a robot.

    I pay good money here. Too much to be questioned like some illegal at the border. For shame, Bill.

    Were probably just the unintended victims of some dickhead screwing with isp's like happened the last few days to Charter with their outages. Would not have any remorse over showing some hackers a bit of southern justice. Got a backhoe and plenty remote places to take care of them. Don't need any three letter govt. idiots to find people.

    This is the one - but it kept repeating over and over until I gave up and closed the page. Bet I checked "not a robot" 5 or 6 times in a row.
