by rabeck4 / June 4, 2006 7:22 AM PDT

another user of this com has used my account and accessed a forum I just activated and has been particularly offensive to the other users, now my access has been banned for good, is there any way to contact the forum moderator and explain the case.

Thanx in advance

Are You Talking About A CNET Forum?
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / June 4, 2006 9:59 AM PDT

What do you mean by: "accessed a forum I just activated"?. I don't see where any of your posts have been deleted or that you have been "banned" here?

If you aren't talking about the CNET forums, then you'll want to visit the forum in question and contact their site admin. If your username was banned at that site, try deleting the cookies for that site and accessing the site as a guest.. You could then find the appropriate e-mail address for the site admin and send a message to that person.

Hope this helps.

No Grif its Limewire Forum and the Mod is Lord of the Rings. I personally have not sent any posts to them but "friend" did. I only registered and left him to burn CD. Dont know what he said or done but he thinks it funny winding people up.

I have tried deleting cookies, and managed to get back to forum, tried to send a private message to MOD but It says I need to register to gain access, obviously I cant enter user name and pass as its banned and tried to enter new but no e-mail being sent because of IP address (I presume).
What did you mean by enter as guest?

Thanx again

That wouldn't let you e-mail...

Visiting the site as a guest would allow you to navigate the site, reading posts and informative pages, but not post or use the PM feature. What Grif was suggesting is look for an e-mail address in the FAQs, a moderator's bio, etc, that you could use to contact them and explain the situation. For instance, here on Cnet that's messageboards[at)cnet(dot]com. Normally I'd say re-register, but there are two problems:
1.) Like Cnet, they may have a policy against banned members re-registering.
2.) If they ban by IP address, you wouldn't be able to re-register.

Your best bet would be to e-mail into[at)limewire(dot]com and explain the situation.

Good luck.

Hi John

Thanx for yor time, but its really starting to drag on now, I am going to try 2 URLs that Glenda posted if they dont work then its a lame duck.
I wanted to access the forum to ask them the best way to filter anything to do with underage stuff.
No matter what you enter even with all filters on you always get results that you dont want young lads (8+10) seeing, I should not have to sit beside them and monitor every thing they do, they only want to see wrestling not sick rubbish.

Thanx again John

Hi Glenda

I will try your URL straight after this post.
I use a different user name and password for everything I do so if anyone found the original that was used for all sites they could access everything.
Unfortunately my memory is not what it used to be so I keep a book with them all in it, book was found and abused. That idiot has been refused access to this com so should have no problems now.

Thanx for taking time to post.
