I've read other posts on this, but they have not helped resolve my problem. I've had Bad Behavior for a long time and haven't had any problems. Today, suddenly, it will not allow me to log in or do anything. It blocks all my actions with the 403 intercept. It does this from multiple computers and multiple IP addresses.
More than once just now, I've completely deleted the Bad Behavior directories and dropped the bad_behavior table from the database. As soon as I freshly install a fresh download and activate it, it blocks me again. I have no idea what has changed to cause this behavior.
Some of the posts addressing this issue say to look in the bad_behavior_log table. I don't have a bad_behavior_log table. I tried looking for my current IP address in the bad_behavior table and it's in there, but I don't see any thing about it being blocked. And how could I already be blocked in the database immediately upon a fresh install after dropping the bad_behavior table anyway? I've refreshed my ATT/Yahoo DSL IP address multiple times, too, and every one is blocked. At this point, I've had to deem Bad Behavior as utterly useless and have removed it for the time being. Is there a fix or is there a comparable, less-problematic substitute? Thanks for any help!!!
