Default IP Banned if Living Outside Country?

Hello everyone! Last year I used to live in Italy and every few weeks or so when I would try to log-on to the boards, sometimes it would randomly say "The admin has banned your IP address. Please click here to contact the administrator." I figured it was some sort of small glitch since most of the time that would never happen.

I moved to Costa Rica a few months ago and just this past week it started happening again. I tried to come to and the same message would appear. I haven't received any infractions, or even posted in the past few weeks, so I have to contribute it to some sort of error or system glitch.

I've never had any problems logging in from within the United States, though. Does anyone know what gives?

Thank you in advance.

I never faced this problem. Always posting from outside the US, obviously.

Way late to this party but it has happened to me in airports and a few internet cafés in Brazil as well.

The board receives a lot of spam from overseas sources, so yes, many of those IPs are banned to prevent the spam.
