Here I thought it went all myfico on us. You are banned for not posting at least 1000 congrats +1 in the last month and not applying for at least 10 cards while drunk.

Me as well. I was sitting there trying to figure out who threw me under the bus. ;)

Glad to know I wasn't the only one.

Members,

This issue has been resolved and was a glitch related to recently moving the site to a cloud hosting environment. On Saturday we banned a spam post by IP but due to a temporary problem with IP authentication the host returned a permanent IP ban message to all IP addresses attempting to access the site. Our IT group did receive an alert and was able to fix this on Sunday, though. We apologize for the inconvenience and confusion that resulted but have taken steps to insure this issue won't be encountered again.

Thanks.

I had a similar reaction to others, thinking I shouldn't have posted anything to get me banned, but decided to just wait it out a couple of days and see if it was a mistake. Thanks for posting an explanation!

You guys didn't sing enough praises on the importance of the garden. And I'm pretty sure some of you talked about manufactured spend and selectively freezing certain bureaus trying to force them to pull your best.
No recess for you, you guys can remain at your desks with your heads down.
