Don't forget to turn off vpn apps when browse this website

[Be warned for users]

Who use any vpn software, vpn sites or vpn browser plugins.
Even you didn't activate it on Xfce site it still detect you & can block you.
So please turn off before access this website if you don't want the website banned ip accidentally.
Not long ago I've checking archive while playing browser game required hola vpn & the xfce website block my Hola's ip lucky it doesn't blocked my ip address permanently, just temporally. Otherwise I'd be pale since there's lot explosive xfce updates today. So better turn them off even didn't use on any website it can detect you vpn softwares. Many websites are sensitive against vpn so it's basic common sense to turn it off or don't browse any other normal websites when you're currently vpn region locked gaming. Just pick one activity & don't be jack of all trades.

PS Off topic:
Also Thank you Xfce developers for fix xfce panel gtk3's by transparency.
This bug fixed affect my decision for shifting 4.12.0 to 4.13.0 gtk3 series extremely.
I'll check it out on Xubuntu 19.10 later how it works.
& test build on Debian stretch, buster(once become stable) to check it out after.

This site doesn't have any VPN blocking rules. However, there are some IPs that are banned due to a lot of spam activity. If you hit this issue again, message me with the IP that you are using and I'll check back against our banned IP listing.

Re: Don't forget to turn off vpn apps when browse this website

you could be using a VPN that shares IP addresses among users at different times, or worse, merges every on a few IPs or maybe even just one.  it is known that a great many spammers have moved to VPNs as that lets them get around bans for awhile.  maybe a spammer was last week using the same IP you are using, today.  a good VPN will block port 25 to frustrate spammers.  but the cheap VPNs need more business, at first, and let spammer do their thing.  if you need to do some serious things like run a mail server, learn how cloud services work and go use that, like i do.
