    ... or something to that effect. Happened yesterday, but I didn't incorrectly login all day...

    Why did I get this message?

    I waited an hour and got in just fine.

    I was thinking more like accumulated vacation time from all my posts, sounds better than log in ban.

    Plus you'd think there would be a warning. I was really wondering if I was being hacked.

    You log out?

    I mean, that's even possible?

    I got logged out when I cleaned my cookies, which is why I hate to do that.

    I clean everything out every time I even change sites, and it still remembers my login name and password in the top left box thing. I just have to click the 'log in' button. I assumed it was based on logging static IP,s not cookies. I was away for some months and it still had me in memory; even a year gone some time back, same thing.

    When I was on MySpace some years ago, my account was locked after several login attempts with wrong passwords. It's a security measure to prevent your account from getting hacked and someone may have tried to log into your account on that day.

    Yep, so my question is, will mods pursue posters who try this form of banning using their IP address?

    So you are saying someone tried to hack your account?
