We had a new breed of spam bot that spoofed the server ip address, so when I banned it I actually banned everyone from the server!

All sorted now, and a new system in place to stop it happening again!

Sorry if you couldn't access the site!

If these guys only used their powers for good!

Again, I'm very sorry to anyone that had the message. But as this was the first attack of this kind I didn't know that everyone was banned. I thought I'd just banned myself!
