This is posted in hopes it will help someone else. I just tried to enter this forum and got a message that I have been banned because of spam, based on my IP address.
I sent an email to the moderator, but have not received a reply as of this writing. Then I remembered I just loaded some add-ons. One of these was "anonymoX" which I (correctly) suspected to be the cause. I disabled it and the problem was gone. There may be other add-ons that could cause such a problem so consider if you have add any when you have a problem.

It´s true, another similar tool which is widely used by spammers, is TOR, like the plugin, change the IP, assigning another, that perhaps some spammer often used.
