I can\'t even view www.animeforum.com normally. It doesn\'t even show up on my screen. It keeps saying \"connecting\" in my browser. Nothing says I\'m banned. I just can\'t access the site. This usually happens because of a hardware firewall (such as a router equipped with firmware that allows it to have its own firewall), blocking IP addresses on its blacklist. Right now, I can\'t access the site at all, except through the proxy I\'m using right now (freeproxyserver.net)

I\'ve not knowingly broken any rules since I had my ban removed from the forum\'s IP address ban list (which wasn\'t a firewall, just a normal forum ban). Yet now my computer seems to be firewalled from the site altogether.

Can someone please explain to me, why I\'m being firewalled from your site?
