Re: Random ban

Thanks. I thought I saw someone say they couldn't find the posts anymore. I was too lazy to verify.

Re: Random ban

Well, I am no expert on the rules of this board, but I will add my own 2¢ by saying that I am confused by why the OP (using the previous username) was banned. I looked at all the posts by JeffreyAbrams and am scratching my head trying to find any nastiness or outrageousness.

Is it really because of the choice of the name?

Or was a mistake made in shutting down the account? (My own bank just had to correct an errror that they had made when they missed recording a deposit that I had made)

In any case, I think it would have been helpful and instructive (and courteous) to have given a reason for shutting down the account. I would have given the OP the benefit of doubt-- that they had unwittingly violated a rule.

Re: Random ban

(i searched for the username earlier but must've spelled it wrong or something.) nothing that contoversial in the posts really.

does seem like they could've at least told him why.

Yes. It is a bit of a head scratcher.

Hopefully he'll be contacted by a Mod.
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.

Re: Random ban

There's a very good reason. But not one that needs to be multi-fora thread spammed.
