My I.P. banned on Tapatalk ?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Are you suggesting that it's a CEO or Tapatalk issue?
The ISP/telco didn't spamlist itself nor is it stopping SQUF from posting on the forums.

The issue is that when you block IP ranges with dynamically allocated addresses then countries with heavy infection rates, like Cambodia, will trigger a lot of false positives. People get annoyed by things like Cloudflare on this forum because of said shitty reputation. Cloudflare has stopped people from posting via Tapatalk in the past where it will throw a CAPTCHA, although that results in a Tapatalk error other than "You have been banned for spam".

The issue is that Tapatalk has blacklisted the ipnum that SQUF was assigned because, like Cloudflare, its reputation system is IP based. You will continue annoying your users this way as long as you keep using services with IP based reputation blacklists. That way, this is both a CEO and Tapatalk issue. Classic admin PEBKAC.

Way above my head so I'm just going to assume you are correct.
