I've been trying to log on to #cncnet all day but it's saying i've been banned... here's a short pastey
[16:33] == End of /MOTD command.
[16:33] == Usermode change: +i
[16:33] -NickServ- This nickname is registered. Please choose a different nickname, or identify via /msg NickServ identify <password>.
[16:33] -syn- Your reported hostname  is banned: Due to abuse we currently accept tor connections via our tor-sasl service only. See freenode.net/irc_servers.shtml - questions can be directed to [email protected]
[16:33] == (Banned)
[16:33] == ERROR: Closing Link: gateway/web/freenode/session (Disconnected by services)

As you can see the ban is to the hostname but I've not abused freenode.net in any way. I'm with British Telecom ISP. Many thanks,
