If you think you have been banned join #ubuntu-ops and ask there.

You can't use anonymous proxies to join #ubuntu.

you can't use anonymous proxies to join freenode at all.

Moved to Forum Feedback and Help <snip>
May I stress out that the proper place to discuss about IRC ops actions is #ubuntu-ops ?
I'm closing here, as there is nothing much we can do and for Staff review.

You should remember that the entire story is not always viewable from a single channel. The ops channel logs are available from the same location and may shed light on the final ban etc. Private messages however are obviously impossible to log, so some discussion may be missing.

You are all welcome to join #ubuntu-ops, or PM any operator to discuss the way the channel is managed. I go by 'PriceChild' on irc too if you would like to contact me.

Finally, there is a documented appeals process: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IrcTeam/AppealProcess

Partial quoting from a similar thread in FFH.

you can't use anonymous proxies to join freenode at all.Incorrect. You can join freenode perfectly well with tor, however some channels, such as #ubuntu may deny you access due to issues with abuse.

You can still join #ubuntu with tor using http://freenode.net/irc_servers.shtml#tor
