Excellent analysis and suggestion! I'll see if Admin can edit that banned screen.

So just do what Anchor says.. email them the affected IP addresses before jumping to any conclusions.

I expect this scenario to repeat itself since now the forum is free for all and as such will have to employ banning to many users.. Maybe the IP banned screen should be rewritten with instructions and explanation that the cause could be unintentional as it can happen so easily
