It can happen that you get an IP address for your dial-up or high-speed connection that was recently used by somebody else who was sending spam using the same IP address. In this rare case, you might get an error message denying you to ability to post to a form on your web site.
There are three possible work-arounds.
First, if you just wait for a few hours, the anti-spam listing of your IP address will automatically expire.
Second, for an immediate fix, simply use our web proxy server. See this page: Usenet News and Web Proxy Servers Since the web proxy server requires you to supply a login and password, the system recognizes you as a genuine user, not a spammer, and always lets you through.
Third, you can give your own IP address POST permission on your
web site. Create a ".htaccess" file in any directory where your
cgi-bin scripts, php files, etc., reside, and explicitly allow
your IP to post. Don't do this unless you are familiar with how
".htaccess" files work.
