* if you know there is no reason you could be banned; ie a model forum member, no previous warnings, complying by forum rules etc etc, and there is no reason for a ban showing,

b) please go to a site and look at the result at the top of the screen. (your IP)

d) log off and log on again, this usually changes your IP addy and you should be able to log in again.
