Help, it thinks I'm a bot

Post by Mike W. »

I've been blocked for over a week now. Phone on cell is the only way I can get thru.

I think the offending rule was removed, but you should really update your web browser!

Basically your version of Firefox is nearly 2.5 years old so the updated protection signatures flagged you as suspicious since those bot scripts typically feature very outdated web browser user agent strings since the code is just copy/pasted over and over again.

Thanks Justin, I was going thru withdrawals. But it wasn't limited to this computer with this version of Firefox, it was IE and Opera on this, Edge and Firefox on a Win 10 machine, ios on a phone and android on another phone.

And emails to the link on the rare occasions I got the full notice bounced which made it really difficult to notify.
