Macy what browser are you using?
It seems that Buzz50 goes on attack/freeze mod whenever it THINKS it detects an ad blocker.wink.png

And It seems that there were a few instances where members said they did not use and adblocker but Buzz thought otherwise, and I guess it has to do with the safety parameters of the browser we use,
E.g maybe the safari settings equal to adblocker for Buzz.y
I have no adblocker on my laptop but I see no Buzz50 ads when on safari and plenty of ads when on google browser,

The techies can not fix if they don't know exactly which browser causes the problem as not many members are having problems it seems.

Did you try to use different browsers on your laptop to see if there is a difference when switching from one to the other?

Gosh how frustrating for those members whom are experiencing issues.
I can say that on three forums I visit, I am having some small issues recently
on each of them, yes it is frustrating. Members are posting there, just like
they do here on Buzz, and expressing "why is it happening, are the admin
going to fix it etc."Some of the same issues exist 'there' as 'here', similar at
times to Buzz, other times things technically are completely different with some
problems the members seem to be having on other sites...

^^^ got distracted and forgot to finish what I wanted to say.

So, on several other sites I visit and have for long times, the
tech issues are present in all of them at one time or another,
for one reason or another. The admin/tech people are pretty
much saying and suggesting close to the same input from the
admin and techs here on Buzz. Sometimes the tech issues
are resolved after a period of time, and only to begin again
for some members. I think it's complicated. I have noticed
though that some similar advice that Buzz is giving, is also
what is being suggested on some other sites to it's members.

That's what I forgot to also say...

It is unlikely but on occasion an Internet Provider will block a site. Do not see why they would block Buzz. There is a way to check to see what one's ISP is blocking, but you would have to look it up on the internet.

Yes they were a few members who had their internet provider blocking Buzz as they saw it as an adult dating site.
It happened to me last time I was in the UK in a rented cottage.
The internet blocked me from Buzz.
