    No reason why it should be, the only IPs that are banned at the moment are a handful and they are overseas. What's the first three digits of your IP address and I'll check?

    How do I find out what my IP address is? It’s something I’ve never needed to think about in the past.

    I had a feeling it would be something like that, not because I'm an expert on these but only because I've spent an extraordinary amount of time deleting and banning the things! Anyhoo, 192 is definitely not banned so the only thing I can suggest is to clear your cookies/cache and log in as normal. That should sort it. If you're on a Mac you can usually just find that site on its own rather than clearing all your history.

    I’ve cleared all the history etc, switched all the stuff off and on again but still banned on laptop and phone. Will try again later, wish I knew more about computers...

    Still no good so I’ve called my internet provider (KCOM) to see if they can help. I’m hoping they call me back soon, but if they can’t help then it looks grim for me. I can’t understand why I get on the site on my wife’s phone, no problem.

    Ok, bear with me. I’m on my way home. I’ll try deleting them one by one until we find the culprit. Will you be online for a little while?

    If I switch off

    I get this

    Might just be an Apple thing!

    Just been speaking to KCOM, seems the IP number I gave you 192 is for my laptop but the router IP it’s 194. He also said my email address “reputation is poor”, he got that info from a site called Talos. Of course all this means nothing to me. But please don’t put yourself out too much for me, don’t want to be a nuisance. I may well have a problem with my computer, maybe a virus?

    Working fine from my laptop now, thanks. But I'm concerned now that I've got a virus somewhere sending out crap and causing problems..

    You won't have a virus, it's just one of those things. Spammers use all sorts of methods, same principle as me using a VPN when I'm overseas to watch BBC iPlayer. I honestly wouldn't worry about it.
