ourhotwives.org forum gone?

A few UK fans of http://ourhotwives.org/forum are seeing a rather terminal "sod off" type message when we try to log in to our fave hotwifing forum.

"You have been permanently banned from this board.

Please contact the Board Administrator for more information.

A ban has been issued on your IP address."

Anyone else seeing the same?

  1. Hello! Yes I am seeing the same, although I'm living in Estonia - I thought it was just me... I've been wracking my brain trying to think of what I could have done to get permanently banned... Ridiculous. Wrote to the board administrator too, but no response yet. I don't know what I'll do without the hotwives forum. Probably save a lot of time actually :)

    By the way, loved your account of recent fun with Jerry. By the way, my wife's favourite vibrator is also called Jerry. That's just a coincidence though :D

    Looking forward to lots more sexy stories from you!

    All the best and keep up the good, HARD work ;)

    1. We have a domain problem that is being worked on. You can access the site by this backdoor.

  2. Same here, I've been locked out, I lurk a few times a week. It's probably an admin thing.

    Love your stories,

  3. They have been having problems with a lot of SPAMMERS and have posted a message on the board that if they delete you by accident please let them know and they will take action to fix the problem.

  4. Well, I've notified them, and no response yet. Has anybody had any luck getting an answer from the admins? I actually think what they did is pretty idiotic - blocking a lot of their faithful readers and contributors. There's no excuse for that.

  5. Very strange... I have no access problems at all. Since I am in CA, and have just tried it and succeeded, perhaps it's a local server issue?

  6. Hey Mike - Could you please write a little note to the site admins on behalf of the banned? I wrote to them several days ago, but I guess they can't be bothered to answer people who've been permanently banned...

  7. Hi, I am from the UK and have been a member of the board for the last 5 years and see the same. Any Idea what is happening

  8. What they have done is look at which IP addreses are not within North America and have blocked them because they believe there used for spamming.
    They figured their are only about 100-250 actual members of the site outside of NA but many more that just lurk. Lurkers their not too bothered about and if you lurk all the time your IP shows up too much.

    No solution avaolable if they don't reply to you. Use a third party browers site instead.

  9. By third party, do you mean something like Tor? Tried that, and the first time I visited ohw forum, it seemed to work, but then immediately brought up the 'you have been permanently banned' shit. Help - what program could I use to get around this bloody country discrimination? What a narrow-minded worldview - blocking all visitors from outside the US. It's almost enough to make we want to forget about the forum altogether...

  10. The asshole moderators at ourhotwives.com still haven't answered my e-mail about being banned... this is the kind of thing that will kill the Internet as a free international medium for communication. Restricting use because a person is from one particular country, as youtube does in many cases, and filtering what people in one country or another can see is just so commercial, so insular, so backward - that's not what I though the Internet was about...

    ReplyDelete
  11. As said above, the restriction is due solely to spambots hitting the site. The admins are trying to control the problem, but recognize that some people are getting locked out.

    There certainly is no gain to them from blocking people's access due to them being from some country.

    By any chance, have you tried setting up a new account?

    ReplyDelete
  12. I wonder if the above commenter is an admin? He sounds like it.

    As mentioned above, the restriction on our access is based on IP address. Thus setting up a new account does not help, although yes, I did try that.

    Whether or not there is any benefit to them of blocking people's access based on country, that is effectively what they've done. What's worse, though, is that they haven't answered my e-mails yet, so there's no means of recourse, other than hiding my IP address, which I haven't yet figured out how to do.

  13. It's gone again. Some spammy thing happening.

  14. Any ideas to what happened to ourhotiwves.org?

  15. I'm not getting a message about being banned. I'm getting some search engine shit trying to redirect me to different types of porn, which is of no interest to me. The OHW site is so much more than porn - it's a community. Hope this shit gets sorted. I'm in mainland UK by the way. I doubt it's got anything to do with the site mods. More likely some hacker who has only cracked the UK web so far.

  16. Nope.. can't access from the US as well... redirects to some spoofy site

    ReplyDelete
  17. I am member of that site, hopefully they can sort it out.

  19. It seems the domain registration expired 2012-08-28. The current owners were not aware because the details held were those of the original owner.
    The current owners are trying to resolve the issue. The hijackers of the .org knew what they were doing and we do not wish them well.
    Look out for OURHAWTWIVES.ORG in the future.

  20. Glad to find something about this. I've been trying to log in as well with no luck. I, too, am being redirected to other porn sites. It's a sad day. :-(

    Goodjob on OHW

    ReplyDelete
  21. Yes, clearly some jiggery pokery gone on here. Was the domain allowed to run out? Hope it's sorted.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Also, to add, I can't imagine that the hijackers could be doing this as a commercial venture because surely all they will get is grief from irate ohw members. Maybe more likely someone who doesn't get "it" or some god botherer doing what they do.

  23. Lozrob66 has ir right. It's not the original ourhotwives.org moderators who are at fault. Someone hijacked the site after the registratio expired.

  25. The thingy which matches the name with the number isn't aligned correctly at the moment. It will be later.
