A friend emailed me to say he had been blocked from one of the forums (Studebaker Truck Talk, forum 23885). Neither he nor I were aware of any transgression, and he received no warning or notice. How can this happen? How can he be restored to the forum?

N54 does not block people from individual forums. It would only be done by the forum owner. It is possible that it was unintentional. The forum owner may have blocked an IP address, and your friend has recently been assigned that IP address by his ISP. He should definitely figure out how to contact the forum owner to see if it was inadvertent.

is to post for him on that forum, explaining that he was blocked and he doesn't know why. Sometimes, forum owners do not have any public notice of how to contact them.
