I presume it must have been a glitch in the database. I tried last night with no luck, but this morning I thought I would try it again, and it worked. ??

edit: This is the message I kept getting until this morning:

Welcome back Tim,

There have been more glitches with the user database last months (seen double user accounts, users with a zero postings counter besides their post,..)
so it is not impossible that it is playing some tricks again.

Thanks, Rob. It is good to be free. I'm tough on the outside, but I'm too old to be in "The Joint". LOL!

I found something interesting while getting all my web browsers back up. All but FireFox would fail the login with the banned message until I cleared the cookies. I cleared both cache and cookies in IE, and it came back to life. I cleared only the cache in Chrome, and it still failed. Then I cleared it's cookies, and it logged in.

It must have been something the database put in my cookies that caused the fail.

Right, that's interesting, just hope it's not contagious  :smiley-mr-green:
Thanks Tim for the push on the karma, all warm and fuzzy now.

Cheers,
Paul
