Sometimes it takes a while to clear. I have found, that if I (YMMV) open a page, let it fully load before opening another, it seems to not lock me out. Yet.

Got the same message for the first time yesterday afternoon. Cleared today.

Only had one window open. Re-booted computer tried to visit, same error message and no way to get to the site.

Very interesting detail:
Today in the morning I entered the PaperModelers forum website from my mobile phone and soon "I was temporarily banned".
When half an hour later I entered the same website from my PC, I found no problems with surfing.
But - and this look strange - when I thought: "It seams the problem has been fixed" and so I tried to enter the site from my mobile once again, I found that on the mobile I am still "banned".
It looks that this "ban" is bound to IP address and not to user account at all.

At this point I don't open a forum link (post, picture etc...) in a new tab unless the previous one has finished loading. This way no more temp bans (one hour?) from Cloudlflare. It doesn't like when you open 2 links at the same time.

Used the old laptop (ethernet cable) intead of the new one (wifi) doesn't change a thing, I think the server sees the same IP or close enough IPs from both. If I'm blocked on one, I'm also blocked on the other untel the penalty time has elapsed.

I had been free of this problem until last night, when it happened. Could not log out until this morning.
Give me a pigfoot and a bottle of beer.
