Thank you for inquiry.

Your IP address will get banned temporarily when you exceed the limit of failed login attempts. This ban is put in place to prevent someone from using automated programs to guess your password. It is lifted in an hour, or when a password is reset.

If you don't remember your password, you can reset it as described at [https://www.livejournal.com/support/faq/17.html#forgotpassword].

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.
