IP banned

I was searching for some guns and from google was directed here and found that my IP is banned. But this is the first time i am logging to this website .
So what i think is you guys have blocked some troll or spammer which resulted in blockage of some sort of NETWORK provider or something. Resulting People of a certain network being banned from using TFL.

That is correct.

Unfortunately we've had to block a significant number of specific IP ranges to deal with an infestation of spams.

It's not a great solution because occasionally legitimate users get caught up in the process.
