1) I am not a mod but know a small bit about networking.
2) Are you on WiFi or data on your phone? Try posting on WiFi on your phone if you were using data.

IP assignment can change from time to time but is very very rare. Something like that I would look into if someone is rebooting the router a lot or your internal hardware has issues or theirs.

If you’re using a public WiFi or data your IP address can be different. Similar to but not the same as using a computer in a lab.

but thanks! now I at least know a bit about what's going on


Because of how I think (as I am hypothesizing here) how the mods ban by IP that may just sporadically happen. If it was on WiFi then it would be another matter. I would try maybe a different router. What may (and I stress may) have happened is some mean person was spamming and your data got routed through that same router. There really isn’t much that can be done imho if that’s the case but maybe someone who is a better network person than me can say.

The good news is that in theory it will go away eventually.
