The O/P should steer well clear of these "w*nky" forums and start one of his/her own, if he or she thinks they can do better..
Have a go yourself before criticising others who spend their hard earned cash and time to provide you with a free product..
I for one would join and post my opinion on who runs the better forum..

I haven't looked into where or what it is but the IP address the OP used to sign up on this forum is in SPAM databases. A lot of VPNs and whatnot get used by botmasters and forums can be hit with hundreds of sign-up attempts per hour. It depends how the specific forum (although some can be prevented at other levels) configures their bot sign-up defence; if they were getting thousands from that IP address they might have just set the software to treat all registration attempts from that IP as spammers otherwise they would have to sort the registrations by hand.
Ban is a bit strong for an iffy IP address alone though, that doesn't happen here .
if you think it's a wanky forum why did you go back?
