I know that this isn't the right forum for this but I don't know where else to go. When I try to open the Rickresource forum page I get the following message...

Is there anyone else here on AOL? If so are you having problems?

I can still log on. Just a guess here, but maybe you had a virus that sent an barrage of emails to forums known to your computer which triggered the blockout. Or someone with your exact same IP number violated the forum terms. Or maybe the guitar gods demand penance.

I'm on AOL and have had no problems at all.

AOL uses a ton of mostly dynamic IP addresses. Probably one or a small block was banned for some reason. There's several other boards that also have had to block various AOL IP's due to abuse.

You might try e-mailing the webmaster as often times they're able to provide an alternate means of access for legitimate users.

I've had lots of trouble registering at various boards that do not allow posting from a "throw-away" (or free) E-mail accounts.
