Change or mask IP address to view forum ?
 
I got banned on a form for a 'no tolerance of' reason, and now I can't even read old threads. I used Tor browser in the past, but that seems OTT. Can I choose my own IP address or does the ISP set that ? Can I "mask" it ?? I don't even need to re-join the forum, but I want to read the threads, since it's educational.

I don't know much computer science

You ISP will set your IP.
You can try using a VPN or look into using a proxy.
