    You guys swing the ban hammer pretty quick around here.

    Received an email saying my account (username: everyquery) was banned for "spamming the forums." Uh...no. I only posted twice on these forums, and neither was spam or advertising.

    I did have a single link to a personal website in my signature, which I assumed was OK since others use their sig for such. If that's not case, then a simple warning to remove the sig would have sufficed. Or just disabling sigs for new members until you reach a certain number of posts.

    Enough of my rant. I have to go write some shell scripts.

    Your original account was banned for spam. You posted this link in your original account:

    http://www.everyquery.com/

    The username and link are clearly spam.

    I would consider allowing you to have an account here, however, your choice of user name and post in the resolution center comes across as hostile, so, considering you were already banned, I banned this account as well.

    Thank you aysiu, the link I posed above was the reason for the ban, notice the similarity between the banned user name and the link ?

    I doubt the link was "accidental"

    I have exchanged a few PM and will allow this user back on a trial basis under the user name

    "Version Dependency"

    This is with the expectation that the user follows the CoC, does not spam the forums, and does not harass the staff.
