After trying out this website on Firefox, I saw it autoblock me too.

This thread is a bit older but i have the same problem still. Just a hour or so ago i got blocked again. It drives me nuts the server is not responding at all leaving you in the dark what's wrong. It basically happens every time i'm logging in trying to post something.
Disabling features in a browser leading to possible worse performance is not an option in my opinion not to mention that you should not really mess with about:config unless you know what you are doing. I think it would be a good idea to implement a workaround server side until the bug is fixed.

Firefox 77.0.1 on Manjaro Linux.

Thanks for the tip to disable RCWN. This has been happening to me every time I visit the site for the past little while.

A duplicate topic was opened:

Trouble with RCWN has been reported to another techie forum:
