Okay, that really is weird. The user who was banned was penpen4life for the ban reasons stated (you'll see it in the ban notices thread) so by rights you shouldn't have gotten anything.

You don't have a dynamic IP address or use a shared computer or anything like that, do you? That's the only reason I can think of for something like this to happen, and in all the time I've been around I don't recall hearing of one user getting hit with the ban reason for another.

It's my bad. It should be fixed now.

An accident of circumstances, of course. The still increasing sharing and reallocation of IPv4 addresses has made this sort of thing far more common than it used to be. Roll on universal use of IPv6, in which everyone has a fixed range of permanent addresses!

I've noticed this afternoon that when I go to the forum page, I can no longer see the forums without logging in. Is this a permanent change or just a glitch? I have no problem with things set up like this, but I do like to check the forums sometimes without bothering to log in.

It is a change. I cannot comment further.

This is not necessarily a change. The issue comes and goes, and only affects some people. I have not yet been able to find a reason, though. I have not had to re-login to read and write this.

Recently received a PM from a fellow classic evageek, tried replying, but apparently:
Some users couldn’t be added as they do not have permission to read private messages.
Odd. This user can send a message but cannot receive one?

Anyone know how I can contact Xard in the meantime?

Not odd, that's how it works with user bans. His email is listed on his profile. Give that a try.
