there must have been a good reason why you was banned, and from reading your post I can see why

I think anyone that runs a forum is doing it generally for the good of a community.

People generally have a problem with rules, if I went into someone else's house I would personally respect their rules. I don't see why a forum is any different!

All forums I know, the moderators and admin do the job out their own free time and to build something special for the members/community.

And the long standing members enjoy helping others and the banter and surroundings.

It's probably your vpn mate, so calling them a Wanky forum is a bit harsh.

how could you know anybody before they've posted?.... & if there was good reason to ban why didn't they do that the 7 years I was already on there?

The title of your thread isn't exactly nice mate, the comments you make about them in your first post aren't nice either.
You claim you were a member for seven years but have lost your login details, your fault, not theirs.
There are ways to contact them and sort it out but rubbishing a similar forum here is not the way to go about it.

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 :).
