What did you do?
================
Filed on behalf of a reader.

1. This reader discovered that visiting https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTML sometimes results in a page that says he's been banned for spamming.
3. 

What happened?
==============
This is wrong because he (a) doesn't have an MDN account, (b) is not logged in, and (c) didn't press the edit button.

What should have happened?
==========================
The page should appear, not a bogus ban message

Is there anything else we should know?
======================================
:sheppy is going to try to get the user's IP address so we can check for a block, if that's not the problem we can use the IP to look through the logs hopefully.

Note that it only happens on this one page for the user.
