    As an ex-forum runner I can tell you it was indeed the VPN, and it's as previously described. VPN's mask IP addresses, and forum admins frequently need that information to block malicious players. Using VPN's in this manner is simply abuse of a good tool, but you wouldn't believe what some of the more popular fora would look like without the "no IP masking" policy in place.
