I hope I have found the correct way to contact a moderator/admin, if not, please let me know.......

I get a banned message when I try to access the board from our company network. I never get to a login page, so it must be an IP ban.

Our company is AeroAntenna Technology Inc. in Chatsworth Calif.

Our gateway IP is: 198.2.56.172

Both forward and reverse DNS are configured for -> ren.aeroantenna.com

I am the IT Manager.

I am a longtime Linux developer/admin looking for a new home now that Debian has gone systemD.

Perhaps the IP was banned by a previous TimeWarner customer. I really cannot imagine anyone here wanting to abuse the Gentoo board...

Can you help me?

Thanks!

It was a spammer-induced ban of a broad range of IP addresses, which I've just lifted. We'll work on banning smaller ranges if necessary.

You should be all set.
