    IRC Ban?
    « on: August 15, 2010, 07:08:19 PM »
    I was banned from the IRC Chat and I don't know why...

    Can somebody unban me or tell me why I was banned?

    I was downloading the trend housecall program they asked me to get and I clicked over to the chat and it said i was kicked so I try to reconnect and it says im banned

            ok, but does anyone know why i got banned?

            I've gone to the chat for virus help a lot, and gotten maybe 4 viruses removed using their help and never once has this happen

            If you think the ban happened for the wrong and/or no reason  See Here...[/u]

            Otherwise wait the 14 days as i suggested...

                I always find it interesting when people post here saying "OMG some douche on chat banned me reinstate me pleez because I'm innocent".

                They don't ban people for no reason. as I noted a LOT of people (well, not a huge number but it happens rather often) start a topic here complaining about being banned, and how innocent they are, they even provide chat logs, and it looks like they might not have done something wrong after all.

                But they "conveniently" forget to mention things like calling people names/swearing at them and a lot of other stuff. somehow I don't think they "forget" or that those messages just "vanish" from the posted log.

                I also find it interesting how you insist so quickly that this horrible "mistake" be corrected, completely forgetting that the very same support you sought on the chat is also available on the forum and at the very least can tide you over for the 14 days. They don't make a habit of reversing bans, and too many people play the "OMG this is ridiculous I didn't do anything" card that are revealed to have done something and known full well what it was the entire time to evoke my sympathies.
