Recently Banned

Postby gregshelley@scrtc.com » Sun Aug 21, 2016 9:20 pm

2 days ago I went to checkout this site and when I got on it it said "you have been permently banned from this site" it also said something about my IP address being banned. I sent 2 e-mails to the administrator and never received a reply, but now I was able to log on. I still have no idea why I was banned, I am guessing it was just a mistake. Has this happened to anyone else?

It happened to me as well. Was locked out for about two days. It came back on sometime between this afternoon and this evening.

I think it affected everyone, since there was a long dead period with no posts.

I didn't send an email, since it seemed like an error and there wasn't the usual activity. I know at least one other person gave the administrator a piece of his mind, though.

I am curious to hear what caused it...

Ok, just was curious. I did not complain, just asked why. I knew I had not been hateful, belligerent, or lewd & rude...lol

This is happening even our our moderator accounts so it appears to be a site-wide software glitch that popped up on Friday. We will get this resolved asap and post a message to the forum. Sorry for the confusion folks.

I suspected some sort of technical issue. However, my email to the administrator (via the form offered from the ban page) also went unanswered for two days. CreditCardGuru is usually very responsive, so I'm wondering if that form works properly.

It happened to me too, and since I'm no stranger to bans on other forums, I thought maybe I had pissed someone off on here, so I emailed the admin. Didn't get a reply, but when I heard from other members that they were locked out I realized it was just a glitch. Oh well. I wasn't rude in my email, just kind of like "huh?".
