question about being blocked from a site,
I have a question thats not 100% computer related but i figured an opinion and help cant hurt, i have, well, i had an account on the dating website plenty of fish, its a very popular site for singles like myself, my problem is my profile gets deleted immediately, if any of you know when you make an account, they text you a code to prove your 'real'. im lucky to get to that page but after i type it in if it works i then go to my profile and i send myself a message and nothing, it doesnt work then it gets deleted after about 6 minutes. So far i have done the following,
1.cleared my files/temporary files
2.used a different email to join, so far i have made 2 on outlook, 1 on gmail'
3.used a different browser, since IE was getting nowhere i used Chrome, same results, i only got chrome for that website, once i found out it didnt work i deleted it.
So im out of ideas, the only 'rule' on the site i can say i broke was i copied and pasted messages to some girls, which i assume everyone does but to ban me all together? seems extreme, esp when my profile had nothing sexual, nor did i have half naked pictures. I also looked on POF's site and this seems to happen to alot of profiles, theirs also no 'help' forum for that site, hense why im using this.
im guessing the site blocked my ISP address, i do NOT use a vpn or anything, i use a standard cable modem from Comcast, no wifi and i dont share my computer, i live by myself. I could unplug my modem for 6-12 hours to 'renew' the IP address but i dont even know if that work? So, any help is appreciated, i can wait out untill they let me re- join, my last option would be to change my cell# for the verification, but that might be useless if they blocked my computer all together.
