    IP Address blocked by Sucuri Website Firewall

    I'm not sure what is going on, but I can't post Excel attachments.

    There is a message that keeps saying that it has blocked my IP address

    We have set up a rule that the firewall blocks attachments (not file uploads) for members with less than 5 posts. This is to try and help block spam
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you

    Thanks for your answer.

    In the meanwhile I googled a lot and later remembered that I had seen something like my solution:

    I removed all less than and greater than symbols from my original message and that helped me skipping this blocking.

    I bit curious: what is the rationale behind this firewall setting: blocking messages with these characters?

    best regards,

    Hans

    I assume the firewall thinks they are HTML tags and thus spam or a virus, therefore blocking the post
