Banned for what?

#1 Post by bgfan » 11 Aug 2010 21:16

My account as "Herr Inoddorell" got banned, may I ask why? I can't believe it, what have I done?

If I have said something that irritated someone, I give my apologies. My english is not the best, but I assure you that I'm not a troll or whatever you think. I just want an answer and once I get it I'll go out by myself and never come back, so you don't need to ban me again, but for sure you're going to do it again.

Regards!

Ban him!
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hope it gets sorted, it may have been a misunderstanding. Or you may have been trying to sell gold and Reebok trainers!

Yeah, I hope that it was a misunderstanding, but I'm not sure if that was the reason for ban. I'm not a spambot, if you think so.

Though I'd like to buy a good pair of Reebok trainers :P.

have you tried PMing the mods? Joost and Orodaran. They might respond quicker then posting it here?


Or Uggs :P

Oh, I thought that PMs were disabled here, as it states in the forum guidelines. But now I'll do it, thanks.

Definitely not any Uggs :mrgreen:

Hi bgfan! Sorry, I saw this only now...

I do a lot of bannings - but just of spambots... and usually, I can recognize one, by the links they post and more generally by how it's damn blatant that it's just a spambot.

I would never ban a "real" user, even if there would be the need (I don't remember in the history of this forum someone that got ever banned... maybe DarkVeil, now that I think about it :P), I'd let the actual admins do the job - anyway, do you remember what you posted and when?? the case may be that I somehow mistaken you for a spambot and nuked your account by mistake.... (which is still there, I can always un-ban you if that's the case)
"There's a time when a man needs to fight and a time when he needs to accept that his destiny's lost, the ship has sailed and that only a fool will continue. The truth is I've always been a fool"
~~~~~~~~~~~~
A slight call afar is tempting me, like a whisper sweet or an awful scream; I cannot ignore what I've always been, I'm leaving again - one last time? in my little kingdom I can be what I really wanted to be... The wanderer

Didn't Joost ban I Pity The Fool the other day when he (Fool, not Joost) had a mental breakdown and started sprouting rude language at everybody?

It was this thread: http://www.blind-guardian.com/forum/vie ... 23&t=37350

Unfortunately Joost edited out some of the best posts, the heat was really on on page 3.

I don't believe that I have seen Pity after this thread, so either he was banned or he decided he loved Israel and went there on a vacation.

Hi and thank you for answer Orodaran. I'm an admin too and yeah, spambots are really annoying, though now we successfully achieved to prevent this problem.

It's very strange because I only posted one link or two, I can't remember it well, but none of those promoted anything. One was posted in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=37727, when a user called for an option for choosing the old site, and I posted this link: http://www.blind-guardian.com/index.php3 which links to the old BG site. The other one, was a link in my signature which links to my fanforum of BG.

So, maybe there was another reason for my ban than just be mistaken for a spambot, and that's why I asked for.

PD: Sorry for the bad english.

Ok, I should have managed to un-ban you, let me know if that works!

No problem, and sorry for the inconvenience :wink: in the spambot massacre sooner or later an innocent victim had to happen, sorry it was you :P

Hahaha, nah don't worry, I really understand :wink:. Once, I have to delete an entire forum, because I logged in 2 days later, and it was full of spambots, hundreds of them :shock:. Luckily, it was only a test board :mrgreen:.

Thank you again :D
