No, you don't need authorisation, but your IP has been banned. Basically, the
only way it could be blocked is if a spammer has used your IP to spam the
wiki. So there's a number of possibilities. It's possible a spammer got the
IP you have now from your ISP via DHCP. Or if you machine has been infected
and taken over...

I've contacted you offlist to get the information I need to unblock your ip.
The wiki now mostly relies on content filters to stop spammers, but the ip
block is still a useful secondary defense.
