This I am surprised about because I never see her posting anything out of line or even sort of out of line.
They are very suspend and ban happy. It's just how they are. Unfortunately. But it's just a website. All you can do is take the time spent and go elsewhere.
@creditwonderful, I'm not sure how you know whos ban is being "debated" or not unless you are an inside source at myfico, and I'm not trying to bash Nixon but I know he was temp banned a few times already and warned before. I'm not sure they tend to just lift bans unless there is a really good reason, especially a permanent ban. But I guess time will tell. Nonetheless, with the way most on this thread seem to feel about myfico I'm not sure why anyone CARES if the ban is lifted...if it's such a horrible site with crappy mods, why would you want to spend time there anyway?
If I had gone back to talk about the same things I was actually warned about: Bumpage, Freezing for profit, and other company unfriendly things. I would understand.
A simple warning here would have sufficed and to immediately go for the nuclear option was absolutely unnecessary. My post wasnt nesc off topic as the GC thread doesn't REALLY have any one topic. The moderator that did the deed clearly went off the deep end here.
Right, I get that you feel it was an overreaction and maybe it was.
But I think you need to just accept it and move on. There's nothing you can do about it. I was banned a few times, once for a month, and life still went on. On the month ban I more or less forgot about the website, and that's why you'll notice I do not post as much on there now. You rediscover things that were important to you before "the credit thing" and realize that yes, it's important to have good credit and it is fine to be passionate about rewards but at the end of the day, it's a way to pay for stuff. It doesn't need to rule your life. I'm just not that interested anymore. I log on, browse, make a few posts and leave. This is much better than spending a lot of time on there which I was before, and I had nowhere near as frequent posts as you but I did spend a lot of my time on there.
My advice is to just try and move on. Whatever happened happened. Maybe the break will help you discover other interests in your life to spend time on. Then if the ban ever was lifted (which I maintain that I don't see a permanent ban being lifted but, you never know) you could approach the website with a much more casual level of interest.
