Well hello and sincere thanks again!! So it's not an IP ban! That's good news. Bad news is that it must be something else!
The attached screenshot #1 is taken on a desktop in Chrome version 66.0.3359.117 on MacOS 10.13.4 "The site can't be reached www.clubcrosstrek.com
took too long to respond." That's the error message I've been getting (after a 30+ second timeout) for the past 6 months.
I have only learned this past weekend that FULL access to the forum on cellular network will in fact work on Android in Chrome--only if I "exit enhanced mobile view". Which is the state I am currently operating in. Wifi does not work on mobile at all of course, only cellular. I've attached screenshot #2 of that on mobile as well.
"Enhanced mobile view" was not functioning properly at all on cellular either. Though at least I could access the home page of the site (forum main page). I can not see or access any content beyond that on mobile until exiting enhanced mobile.
As you can see this is all very strange. I can't imagine I am the only user experiencing issues, but here's hoping any of the above information I've provided might help!
