IP Ban?

Just wondering how I got an IP ban? When I log into RS I get this message:

"vBulletin Message

Sorry. The administrator has banned your IP address. To contact the administrator click here"

However, I haven't done anything wrong so I'm wondering why it says I got IP baned? I'm going through a different IP right now and it works fine... so I don't think it was something I did that got my IP banned?

So I'm at home on my pc right now, logged into RS obviously. I went on my n97 earlier through opera mini to access RS while using data on the Fido network and I get the same message about the IP being banned. I sent a message to the admins but is this a common error happening?
The key to everything is patience. You get the chicken by hatching the egg, not by smashing it.

When browsing on a phone, your browsing is done via a proxy server which suggests that the IP of the proxy server was banned and not "you" per se.

Perhaps the admin can take a look into this.
