    Re: “Thank" button problem

    What's the "obvious reason"? This forum doesn't block anyone regardless of what's in their profile.

    Please edit your profile. Forum rules require accurate information.

    Re: “Thank" button problem

    If the forum was blocked, who was blocking it? I can access it in Tokyo. Tzfujimino, the problem may be your device, No one is blocking anything at this end, and access is fine in Japan.

    Re: “Thank" button problem

    Not ours either. It is a weird one. Research suggests that the IP claiming to be you is from China. Someone has spoofed your IP and ID.

    The OP is realEnglish. They changed their profile to say they're in Japan because they thought the China location led someone monitoring their forum activity to block the site.

    And realEnglish has now been banned, it seems.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    That's scary!
    But thank you for letting us know about it.
    If anything (strange) should happen to me, I'll report it here.
