Mobile Issue.

I am able to access this website just fine on my computer, but there's an issue on my mobile device. It reads exactly:

"You have been permanently banned from this board.

Please contact the Board Administrator for more information.

Reason given for ban: Goodbye, shotty.

A ban has been placed on your IP address."

I use my mobile device to access this site a good chunk of the time and if this could be fixed I'd really appreciate it!

I think I can explain this: most mobile providers use a rotating pool of IPs, and you therefore don't always get the same one when you connect.

You probably just randomly happened to end up on an IP that a banned user had used at the time of their ban / in the recent past; it's unlikely, but possible. Then when you moved onto a new IP things started working again.

Many sites have a policy to expire IP bans after a while in order to stop things like this happening.
