86.184.110.36 - ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED

Accessing your site via a proxy at the moment but can't upload an attachment to my post this way.

Did you have a question that is clearly about Audacity?

For the benefit of all our users, we have a strict policy of not allowing spam or unauthorised advertisements. Occasionally (but extremely rare) this can cause genuine users to be locked out of the forum, for example if someone with the same IP address, or someone spoofing your email address posts spam or other unacceptable content.
9/10 questions are answered in the FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)

No. I just went to proxy.org to leave that post.

Yeah, although I suppose it could also apply to any alternatives (I'm not aware of any). Got locked out from the site after trying to upload an attachment. Anyway, I'm at a different house now and will try again tomorrow.
