You should raise a support ticket with Cryptic directly tbh dude.

Forum infraction policy means you're probably going to get a warning just for posting this thread (See Discussing Disciplinary Actions)

Also for some reason, I just have this gut feeling you're about to line us up for the old "My account was used for abuse/spam, i was asleep, it was my brother/sister/dad/dog" routine... really hope thats not the case.

Best of luck with getting your account sorted in any case.

I though the first rule of Forum Club was you don't talk about Forum Club.

Sorry for the inconvenience. One of our moderators was forced to ban a very naughty person, and made his net a little large. You got caught in it too.

We've lifted the ban, you should be able to get in now.

Haha! Congratulations on doing absolutely nothing, but that would no doubt scare some people.

What with all those important looking numbers and everything. Show them a port scan next time.

I would like to point out that Cryptic do not own the Coldfront network. Therefore, if you do anything in the STO channel that breaches the Coldfront terms, they will ban you.

Also, most of the mods in the IRC channel do not work for Cryptic, they are members of our community that have proven to Cryptic to be mature and worthy of a moderator position. I know for a fact, that they don't ban without due reason.

Remember that a lot of the people in IRC keep chat logs. If you feel you have been wrongly banned from IRC I suggest posting a ticket so they can review the logs. Although I doubt that this will be at the top of their priority list. </seriousface>

# 10 Don't post your IP???

Every computer on the internet can be expected to be port scanned 8-10 times a day. Not disclosing your IP is not going to protect you from anything. You disclose your IP every time you turn your computer on and visit any site on the net.

My web sites do not track hw many times "Bob" visits my site, they track IP address of everyone that visits and what they do when they visit.

Now, if I gave my real name, address, etc and my IP, someone trying to target me specifically might want that information.

But if your trying to target me, knowing the IP addess of TexKSAH buys you absolutly nada....

A simple random port scan on a range of IP's will reveil 100's of unprotected PC, servers and routers. Why would you focus any attention on a singe IP of someone you know nothing about?
