While I can understand your frustration, just exactly, how or why would we know anything about this? You really need to take it up with the forum administrators over there.

As a note, I noticed they have extensive set of rules; have you read through them? Maybe you inadvertently broke one? Once again, you would have to ask them. I would imagine they sent you (or should have) some explanation to your email.

The name Procenko is definitely not listed as a member. Did you use that or something else? I could try messaging a moderator to find out what happened.

Seemed pretty clear to me; they said you violated the forum rules, and your posts didn't make sense...so they thought you were a spammer. So they then obviously would delete your account/posts.

Since they don't make money from it or the forums, I don't think it's going to impact them.

Well perhaps you didn't show any or enough contrition to convince the moderators to reactivate your account. Forget about it. Use a new username next time. Or recontact the moderators with a second, polite request, explaining that you now realize you did spam and will avoid this in the future.

Moderators can be like that — It's their board, after all. If you think you had problems, you should see the way some reddit mods behave!

@DavidMcCann, I very quickly realized that Reddit is censored. They very actively control what is allowed to be there, expunging anything that they disagree with. You do not initially realize that the content is therefore highly biased. Once I discovered this, I had no further use for Reddit and pay no attention to it now. (Pity. At one time it was a very innovative idea.)

"Being a moderator" is something that I hate. I briefly had a forum on my company web site because I thought that customers wanted such a thing. Which made me the "moderator." Very quickly, I realized that "swatting things down" was wasting a lot of my time. The Revelation™ then being: the things that I was "endlessly swatting down" weren't "communications from and among my customers," and that, by and large, "my customers" weren't participating at all. So, with a great sigh of relief on my part, "out went the forum!" (Sales didn't flinch, and no customer ever asked me to put it back.)

All that being said – there is exactly one reason why "LQ is a good place to be." The moderators.

So: "Thank you, good folks!" But: better you than me.

...and that's up to them. Read their forum rules; their forum=they can do what they want. Complaining here won't change it.

As suggested to you, make another account, apologize for your behavior and move on.
