1. If you are not the person that was banned/muted, you are only allowed to post evidence. Trash talk is unnecessary.

    Link to your ban or your com block:
    Why should you be unbanned or unblocked?:
    I am not using a proxy but your detection always says that I am. The only reason I can think of for why this is happening is that another person plays TF2 on this IP.

    :confused: I see the ban is only for 10 minutes, but I feel like I'll just get banned again for setting off some proxy detection thing.​

    Some internet service providers can give out IP addresses in a way that classifies them as a proxy.

    You can bypass the automatic 10 minute ban by meeting the criteria listed here: https://www.skial.com/threads/why-am-i-banned-for-proxy-ip.37223/
