Updated Spam Signatures


Recommended Posts

If you see a page saying 403 Forbidden and don't know why, it could be due to the spam filter update. If that happens, don't do whatever you did 3 times, or you be automagically banned.

Reply here with exactly what you did prior to seeing the 403 Forbidden page.


If you clicked a link and saw it, copy/paste the link here (others don't click it)


If you were posting and saw it, copy/paste the exact topic title/description as some words can trigger it as well.

i received that message every time i tried to get on GT from Chile (except once when i was using an unknown wifi signal). it stopped happening in Argentina. i never did anything except click on GT link from my favourites menu or from google. i couldn't even get on when trying to reply to pm notifications in my email.


this was the message:


403 Forbidden


The detected reason(s) you were blocked are: Bothost and/or Server Farm

it means that error should be expected on many free networks in foreign countries which are often used by spammers, as well as some non-free networks in other countries that are often used by spambots. ie, you won't be able to access GT from most of China and Korea and many free proxies.
