    Let's just say I could use some alcohol right now.

    Luckily i came over to tell you it was down as you were clearly already very stressed whilst trying to fix it.

    Wondered if I was really permanently banned and if so, why. :afraid:

    The only thing that came to mind was that I had deduced that one of the founders was related to James Delingpole and accused the latter of lacking in knowledge.

    I called She-Ra asking why I was banned lol
    And then I realised I was "banned"..... I was anticipating my P45 next

    I was on Twitter talking to our lovely followers who were a little concerned to say the least about their recent "ban"

    Wondered why on earth I was banned. I then tried (and failed!) to make a dupe to ask what was going on.

    How many times do you reckon you clicked refresh during the downtime? I think i lost count fairly quickly but i was within earshot of the yell of "It's back on" in the office.
    I don't know really, I was putting my investigative cap on a bit too. :holmes: Says I'm banned.. Sign out, still banned.. Maybe it's my IP.. Check on my phone, phone banned too.. Something fishy going on.. Better check Facebook/Twitter for announcements..

    I just went over to my main forum and moderated that. I was scared for a second that I was banned. But twitter saved the day on that.
