Windows 7 forum

Resolved Question

"banned for life!!!"

I have had repeated problems signing in to "windows 7 forum".
On each occasion, I have had to create a new account in order to respond to my email.
Now I have been "banned for life" for having too many accounts.
Now I am beginning to believe this website is not worth the trouble. There are so many others available, but I had assumed this was the logical place to start.
Anyone else encounter such a problem, or am I just cursed by "win 7 forum"?

Can you email me....

In reply to: "banned for life!!!"

Please email me and let me know those accounts that you can't access the forums with.

To email me, click on my name and on my profile page on the right hand side click on the link that reads "E-mail Lee" and send an email with all the accounts that you are having troubles with and I can investigate.

Please include the email address that you used (do NOT post them here.)

I wonder if their post "bottomed out"?

In reply to: Well, you seem to be posting OK

Some folk scream at the moderators for locking or banning when the discussion BOTTOMS OUT and you see the can't reply message.

While the workaround is to reply to the top post and carry out (reminds me of that saying "Keep Calm and Carry On"
a few members do yelp when it happens.
