    Banned ?

    You Are Banned
    You have been banned from our site for one of two reasons:

    You use an offline browser to download our site in mass.
    You use an ad blocking program.
    We do not allow offline browsers on our site. People use them to download the entire site which really puts a load on our server. Additionally they can be used to effectively steal all the work we put into placing these works online. If you're interesting in buying PDF files of the works on this site please visit http://www.online-literature.com/cd/

    We do not allow ad blocking programs for obvious reasons. Nothing in life is free, you pay for your access to our site by viewing the advertisements, if you choose not to view the advertisements then you're stealing from us. You will need to deactivate your ad blocking software in order to access this site.
    Your IP address is: 141.101.77.201
    ... not my IP address, but then I use a VPN; I think I'm in Denmark today

    Ok, what did I do ? Doing stuff I usually do for the last umpteenth years... even accept ads. Was trying to edit a post when the above blasted at me (note: edit aborted).

    So:
    Using offline browser to download our site in mass ? Didn't even know that was a thing and I'm pretty sure I'm not doing that
    Adblocker ? No
    Offline browser ? Don't think so... using Opera as usual online.

    Hopefully just another bug in the works, though I have noticed many previous bugs have gone the way of collecting dust elsewhere (thank you !!!)

    P.S. I didn't know one could buy .pdf's from LitNet... go figger.

    Ta ! (short for tarradiddle),

    Don't worry, tailor. I received the same message the other day. I wrote Logos, but I noticed that I was able to post normally. And so are you or I wouldn't be able to read your post.

    You're definitely not banned; could be just something with the software version.

    This software seems to have a preference for Litneters, that frequent the forum at night time. So, everybody be warned.
