There are some features you may want to view such as another member's attachment in a topic that require you to be logged in to

view. Another that requires logging in is viewing another member's profile.

Cruising the site otherwise, such as viewing tutorials, does not require logging in.

see the url i have posted in the print screen.. it's nither  an attachment nor a profile data.. Yesterday each and every bleeping computer resource is restricted for non-members for some countries.. If i change my ip to USA one using hidemyass, I will not be prompted to login.. it just direct me to the regular page

 

see this thread .. same for this

I want to know this because I am referencing bleeping urls as recommended urls in various forums.. But as such under such closed forum status I do have a hesitation to use bleeping references.. Where i believe knowledge should be free for access.. without troubles.. Most of the users will not tend to bother to sign up just to see a reference url .. they just simply discard and search another whatever the reliability or validity of the reference.. This thing really discourage users from using free resources in bleepin .. In a nutshell what I sincerely feel is  these steps will simply imply to lazy users "GET LOST FROM THIS FORUM"  ... Besides they will not use proxy servers and see the resources

That URL no longer exists. I get the same error, so it is neither in a hidden forum nor are you restricted. Some malware will block access to this help site as well as other help sites. So make sure that you can access the site with a known good computer and that will help you troubleshoot it is a local computer issue as opposed to a site issue.

Thats strange because it works for me now too. But when I copied your original link info I got a 404 error like it no longer existed. I tried 4 times to be sure I had it copied correctly.

Do me a favor and if this happens again, please pm me directly. We do not ban countries by any means, but we do sometimes ban ranges of ip addresses. Not sure if the IP address was banned for some reason.

I honestly have no idea why you would have seen that message from the virus removal forum, though. Will look into that today.

Continuously various banned messages i was seeing yesterday.. But i didn't take print screens.. different from the screens i have posted.. Suddenly i feel like i was banned but i understood its some kind of  malcondition.. As you said it should be a banned/blacklisted ip address.. For the moment i'm using a different broadband connection from a different isp and i see no error or banned messages.. I will be able to provide you the ip address range when i return... sooner.. Thanx..

Ok this is the ip range information..

http://whois.domaintools.com/61.245.163.50

still these ips are having issue.. may be blacklisted due to some reason.. Mobitel is the second largest isp in sri lanka.. 

Even the root domain is blocked for this ip.... these screenshots are from my phone

The IP address range of 61.245.163.* was banned due to heavy spam from many ips in that range.

Its sad that IPs have to be blocked...... Almost always an innocent user is affected....

One time on this VBB site that I didnt goto for 1 year must have had a spammer as when i finally did go back to the site,MY IP HAD BEEN FLAGGED FOR SPAM!! (I hadnt done it (I hadnt visited for a year or more)) I tried to explain this to staff and after a couple Pms to them my account was deleted...

I havent tried to re-register.....

Makes me feel bad!!
