Hi. I use Hotspot Shield when using the internet at my house in order to get around the restrictions my parents have put on the internet- half of DeviantArt & other things are blocked for me when I don't. The program changes my IP address or something. Up 'till today I haven't had any issues and have been in the IRC many a night. However, today I tried to go on and it told me I was banned because I had to connect with my real IP address.
Why is this suddenly an issue?
It was mostly like put into effect because of ban evaders or people DDoS'ing the server.
