I tried signing on late tonight, close to closing in fact, and got a message that my IP address was banned until 2006-07-08. After about 30 seconds it went to something like 'there is a problem with the game', I don't remember. Is there a general theory for this? Did dh write vmk begging for permanent dc so his wife and kids would do what they ought during the summer? When I went to see if I could find out why if said due to sharing too much personal information. Two possibilities come to mind, if it's me. Telling someone the master was home and I g2g make dinner, lol. And she said your real life taken, and I said yes. OR, more likely, poor choice of warding off pesty boys who pretend to trade just to PM asking if I'm taken by saying I have tree kids and could be their mummy. In fact I had someone join my pirate game last night that started off twice saying "yo mummy" which sounded like rude ghetto talk so I ignored it. He/she directed more coments, some I know were to me, during the game, yet they had the lowest score at the end to be the ones complaining, and we won the game. So was this a guy who had his ego crushed that morning and recognized me on the dock, thus called me mummy in the game, then reported me after the game as harassing him with personal info? I don't know, but what I wonder is why ban the IP address and not the name? Is it b/c they know there are multiple users and likely more than one by myself? My kids won't be happy. We do have a basement computer they don't know is hooked up to internet(I recently found out) and dh laptop which I don't know password for and he may not be willing to tell. Is it worth telling them I don't think it's a fair ban? I don't know which character they are targeting so if say it my other character were a friend's who comes over to use our computer for email b/c she doesn't own one then it wouldn't be fair that she'd then have to go to the library to play. I may have to visit my local library tomorrow. In the mean time, there won't be any meeting with more than Us Greets Us in MY room, and that's only if I get signed in, so someone else feel free to open their own room 1/2 hour after vmk opens with the same room title to meet/greet for the purpose stated in religious sig thread. No religious talk, just making friends, please. And identify yourselves as dis boards members if it's not in your sig.
