Somehow something strange is going on with your account..

One time you can log in normally, the other time you`re blocked for scamming..
Seems to be something with your ip address .

The only easy way i can think to resolve it is to switch your router/modem off for the night and switch it back on the next morning.

That way you`ll get another ip address and everything should be fine.

He's using his phone to connect so it's the Mobile Data network.

That may be true, but according to the spam filter , he also got banned on the same ip address he used to write the topic start.
Could be his ip address is blacklisted , that`s why i gave the advise to turn his modem/routre off for the night.

Most isp`s give out 12 hour leases, so that way he will get another ip  ;D

It seems that your ip address sometimes is considered "bad"

I made the checking of the ip adresses a bit less strict, so it should be more easy for you to log in.
Just hope it will still keep the spammers out..
