More dog fights and insane admins at https://www.phpbb.com/community/. This is the first time I've seen this forum... My IP is banned for 1 day after posting 3 legitimate messages without anything remotely problematic.

They suspended 2 of my accounts without any explanation. They don't have any court rulings of course. Dog fights are top priority for them.

They need a doctor or just jail. Call the police! Don't wait!

Power users can see pointless warnings during copy paste or semi-automated form submissions with some phpBB icon phpBB versions... Just inefficient.

I don't know if there any settings...
