Why Was I Banned

My original username chrisburke turned up banned today.. No explanation, no warning, banned forever... And for the life of me, I don't know why, as I can't recall anything mean ivedone or said othe forum in a very long time... As far as I know, ive been very civil lately... Can someone please explain... I'm sure that this account will get banned too. But please, before it's banned, please let me know what ive done, because I'm really at a loss...

If I was banned for something I did, that's fine, I can take it... I just want to know what I did, because as I said, I'm at a loss

Did you ask the mayor? And why have you been reinstated under almost the same name if you've been banned?

I've sent him a message.. as for question 2.. i must have already had the second account created, because i went to create a second account so I could post to figure out what was up, and my username was in use.. so i figured it must have been me.. did a password reset, and it was..

The attachment shows what happened.

Someone posted spam, the spam message was replied to and quoted, thus reposting the spam link.

ehMac spam security software then took over when it was reported and spam deletion went into action.

Please, please, PLEASE do not quote spam links.

In fact, please don't reply to spam at all, even with comments like "Spam reported" etc... . Please just report the spam, and one of the mods will get to it shortly. I'd rather have 10 people reporting the spam with no replies, then just 1 person reporting it with a reply to the spam in the thread.

Thanks.

Good to have the clarification regarding spam, and that it's possible to get yourself nuked at the same time.

It's kind of like seeing someone going 160 KM's on the highway, and then speeding up to 160 KM's yourself and then phoning the the police while booking it to report there is someone going 160 KM.

Kinda.
