High Sierra Map is broken

Instead of emailing or messaging the Admins or Mods with technical support questions or comments about the site, we prefer you check here to see if someone else has had the same difficulty or has made the same suggestion. What you're after might have already been posted and addressed here or within the FAQ. If not, please post a detailed description of the problem/suggestion and someone from the HST team will address your needs shortly. If you can't login/post and are unable to reset your password on your own, you may contact us directly.

Glad the fixes worked BSquared and SirBC.

@SirBC, we rarely ban by IP explicitly, but the forum software does have checks against 3rd party spam databases (within which the IP address posted in your screenshot is found). I made a small change to the threshold here, but if spam starts to return will have to set it back - I'm reluctant to lift any of these checks entirely for fear of going back to the dark ages of needing to delete hundreds of spam posts a day. I'll also mention @ERIC here to see if he has any ideas off the top of his head.

It is unfortunate that, like so many things in life, a select few whom abuse VPN IPs basically ruin it for the rest of us. As Greg points out, we recently did have the blacklist feature disabled while the site was updated, and the increase in spam activity was insane.
