Why was I banned





vigneshn
I(vignesh_natraj) was banned recently from accessing the forums and also my hosting account is banned. I have enough points.
May I know the reason why was I banned.
any chances of my account getting unbanned.
I also sent a email via contact.php but no reply
please reply to this post.

Hmm...you don't appear banned to me. Your rank still shows as "Senior Frihoster". Are you sure you are banned? Do you receive some message like - "You have been banned from this forum" or something when you try to log in?

Still, it would be better to wait for any admin or moderator to answer this question.
vigneshn
I get this message
You have been banned from this forum.
Please contact the webmaster or board administrator for more information.

That's possible, since in phpbb2 being banned does not automatically get you the BANNED ranking image. That has to be done manually. It may also be possible that you recently got another IP address, which in the past was used by some spammer, and got banned.

Your account was banned due to repeated violations, despite several warnings, of forum rules - most recent one being referral links and pyramid schemes.

I never posted any referral links
and what was the pyramid scheme I posted

I'm not sure what you're trying to pursue here, but ...
The referral link was in your signature (in case you didn't know) - http://www.ondemandprofits.com/?cb=??????? , disguised as a tinyurl.
The site in question also happens to be a pyramid scheme.

Thought referral links were legal here in your sig, just as long as you don't go around spamming the link in posts...

Coulda sworn I saw an admin post that in some thread I was reading
vigneshn
that was only in my signature
You can have links in your signature and not in posts
I didn't post ant posts regarding that

Your correct in saying you can have links in you signature, I have one in mine, but if they go to a site that has illegal or inappropiate content, or advertises a site that is against the TOS...that is not allowed.
vigneshn
i can't understand what's wrong or for that matter illegal in the signature link
saratdear
Actually, referral links are not allowed in signatures as per the rules.

P.S. to mods : I am not backseat-moderating. Just thought of helping him out. Please.. Smile

Correct. Referral links are not allowed whether they are in your signature or in a post:

Tricking someone into a pyramid scheme is illegal in most countries and can result in severe punishments - including prison. I don't see how doing something on the internet is different than in "real life", other than being harder to catch and punish.
vigneshn
i don't understand what is the pyramid scheme ?

Here's the Wikipedia Definition.
