What is this crazyness that gets displayed when I try to update my password!!!

The password does not contain the required characters.
Your IP 209.113.227.XX or your username radjr or your e-mail address radjr@pnpXX.com has been blocked because it is blacklisted. For details please see http://rest.akismet.comuser_ip=209.113. ... t_content=.
An entry on the blacklist may have several reasons:
1. You are a well-known spammer.
2. Last time a well-known spammer was using the dynamic IP address which you got from your ISP (Internet Service Provider), your e-mail address or the username you have choosen.
3. Your ISP is well-known for a lot of spamming customers and is not fighting against spammers enough.

Well...not sure what databases you are reading this from..but how about not throwing us in with every other low life that sits on Earthlink T-1s.

Hi radjr,

It looks like your IP address has been blacklisted by Akismet, which is Wordpress' spam-blocking mechanism. You should be able to follow the link that was provided to you to remove your IP from the blacklist. Unfortunately spam is an ongoing issue for the support forum - without these blacklist features in place we would simply be overwhelmed by it. We're actively working to migrate to another forum option in the near future, but in the meantime we appreciate your patience.
