Summary: IP address temporarily banned
Original Request:
I just changed my password after forgetting it. Got the email w/the link, changed p'word successfully. When I tried to log in I was told my IP address was temporarily banned.

Why?

How soon can I log back in?

Thank you for inquiry.

Your IP address will get banned temporarily when you exceed the limit of failed login attempts. It is lifted in an hour, or when a password is reset.

If you are still seeing this error after a while or after resetting the password, you are most likely viewing a cached (locally stored) copy of the page in question. Please see [https://www.livejournal.com/support/faq/160.html] for information on how to clear your browser's cache.
