Did the Antipolygraph Admin (George Maschke) ban my IP?

I have posted off and on on this forum anonymously for years.  It seems that recently I can no longer access from my home computer, work computer, or mobile phone.  I am using TOR now to access the site.  I am not sure why this is.  George, are you banning IP addresses now, or even MAC addresses?  I have never spammed this site, only posted what I believe is good info about the poly.  What is the reason I, or anyone, would have their IP or Mac Addy blocked?

To quote disgraced former United States Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, "not wittingly." At the time you posted, had intentionally banned fewer than 100 IP addresses. All bans were for spam postings. All IP bans have now been lifted. However, our Swiss web hosting company, NovaTrend Services GmbH, runs anti-denial of service software that sometimes bans certain IP addresses, including certain (but not all, categorically) Tor exit nodes and commercial VPN servers.
