After years of reading this board, a few days ago I finally decided I wanted to join in a discussion. Didn’t end up going so well. After my first post, my account was deleted, my email banned, and even the IP I was at, also banned, so I couldn’t even make a new account from that physical address.
I could see absolutely nothing in the content of my post that would have warranted any of this. But it was quite a long chunk of text that I pasted in, and because I didn’t realize at first the post was just hidden temporarily pending moderation, I tried to post the same thing again.
Appologies ahead of time if I should have familiarised myself more closely with the board rules first and found out the answer that way, but I thought I’d take another stab at getting started this way. I did email the webmaster about this a few days ago, haven’t received an answer yet.
So, after that lengthy preamble: I suspect the reason of the ban might be pasting a long text and/or trying to post twice in a rapid succession. If not that, I’d be interested to know what else could be the explanation, so I can avoid the same happening again.
Thanks for help!
