is indeed correct - and what is happening is spot on
The forum system here uses an 'RBL LIST' Which is a database/website which holds a list of registered blacklisted IP addresses.
Many of these are Nigerian or Russian in origin - and are where many scams, hack attempts and phishing emails come from.
The forum checks against this list for everyone using the forum to post. It would seem (as with a previous chat with glallotments
) that several BT IP addresses have been added to this list - most likely after an innocent user whose PC was infected with malware starting sending out junk mail.
(Doesn't this get complicated??!)
The way to complain to BT is to record your IP address (visit www.whatismyip.com
to see it) when you see a denied or blacklisted message on a website.
Then report this to BT - saying this IP address is on the RBL list.
Out of interest - you can check if an IP address is listed by going to:http://whatismyipaddress.com/staticpage ... lacklisted
Sorry for that terribly techy post!!
