VPN Usage

Does the Perl Monks site forbid VPN usage? When I tried to post a reply in a forum, I got the error message, "You do not have permission to post. Tough beans." The error went away when I disconnected from my VPN. Thanks.

    No, we don't expressly forbid VPN usage.

    What you may have encountered might have been a random error or maybe your VPN gave you an IP that is blacklisted with the site. But we only blacklist IP addresses for (repeated) abuse, not for being associated with a VPN.
