    VPNs often used for spam or other dodgy things... not just on Geoexpat. I have noticed that Carousell refuses to work via VPN.

    It's also not consistent between VPN providers.

    My VPN occasionally gets blocked. I'm guessing it's Cloudflare playing whack-a-mole.

    I had it last week suddenly from Portugal, IP/country blocked. Not using VPN, only blocked using data network, worked fine using my WIFI. Was solved quickly by Geoexpat after I reported it with the details from the block message.

    Next time you get blocked - send a support request and we can sort it out.

    In general we block when we encounter a persistent spammer / troll who tries to circumvent bans. Eventually do get manage to get 'em.

    Can you go to Google and type what is my IP and report that address on the form or by PM to me?
