I was banned from ezboard...

Globally Banned
This account has been BANNED from the ezboard Network!
Reason: Cross-board spamming

??? What the hell? ??? Cross-board spamming? Banned?
I contacted them, but I don't count on an answer. Oh my. I already heard the same thing from other users, and it sucks big time. Paid for it, did nothing wrong. Fuckers.

I mean, it's almost impossible to find a better user name!    :'( ;)

(Oh, and sorry for the cursing. Needed it...)

Jurgen, aren't you a mod over the Spock's forum?  Sounds ridiculous.  Hope you can work it out.

Yet another reason why I'm not a fan of EZboard.. it's anything but EZ if you ask me. :)

Phew, problem solved. Well, not really solved, but I'm unbanned again. Filled out some contact form (was a quite angry mail, btw...) and they reacted within 5 hours - not bad.

I have unbanned your account.
The Cross-board spamming ban is triggered by more than 5 consecutive posts with identical subject lines. If you are posting the same (legitimate) posts on multiple boards, please alter the subject line slightly to avoid the cross-board spamming ban.

I know I didn't do that - but in case I did, there must be a way to verify this first (e.g. by contacting the board admin or however).

And Shawn, I also prefer other kinds of boards (like this one here - except for the ugly emoticons...), but there's no choice when your band has an ezboard-forum.

Cal, I'm only a moderator on the SB board. That only means a bit of power.   ;)
