Wasn't sure if I should just shoot Mikey a message about this, but I figured it could be a good heads up to others as well who're inside the UK.
Basically, the British government has recently passed something being reffered to as the "Snoopers Charter". It's gotten through the house of commons, house of lords and now just has to be enshrined into law within the coming weeks -
with the use of this bill it's possible to look at literally everything anyone on the internet is doing - emails, websites, the works. This is pretty
terrifying so naturally, as a UK resident, I went and signed up with a VPN.
Only to come here, and find that I've been banned! I'm guessing there's some sort of auto setup on the forum to prevent people using a proxy here for
any reason, although I think "not having to sacrifice all of your online privacy" is a pretty good reason for using a proxy/VPN.
That is, unless, it was an active decision of a mod or someone to place the ban - if so, well, now you know why I'm using a VPN.
It's a pretty big pain to have to close all other active tabs and disable my VPN to come to Div-Arena, is there anything we can do to sort this out?
