In the classifieds rules thread it clearly states no 'garbage posts.' It also states that one shall receive a warning if that sort of post is made, and repeat offenders shall be banned for a bit. I will admit I did not read those rules until after I was banned myself this week. I have never posted an ad to the classifieds, for I haven't needed to sell anything yet, so its just something I didn't get around to doing because I didn't realize the mods would have a rule about 'garbage posts' (which of course is up to THEIR discretion obviously. I certainly don't believe my posts were garbage. I was trying to be nice, playful, show some love,whatever.) During this ban I was unable to read my PMs and I couldn't access the tracking number for my Axe Fx I bought off another member. It's not really a big deal I guess, but it just sucks that people post garbage to the classifieds ALL THE TIME, things like "oh man thats my dream guitar" or "wow i wish i could afford that" I just looked through and found like 10 of those and none of them have a 'banned' tag under their username. Not cool, especially when your actions affect me and my recent purchase personally. So why did you ban me? And then why didn't you respond to my emails when I asked about it? That's just lame and unprofessional. I sent 3 of them. No response. Kinda makes me want to get off this forum completely, but I can't because the gear for sale and the information on here is too good. So now I'm just afraid to post something and get banned again because a mod is having a bad day and wants to be an ass. I guess all im saying is it would have been nice for a mod to have PMd me and let me know instead of just pulling the trigger. It was really bad timing, if it was a day earlier it could have lost me that Axe Fx I bought.
