Did the mod confirm why you had been banned?

Are you sure it was for that particular interaction?

I've been on the BBS for over 10 years will no problems at all, Couple of yellow cards for heated discussions and just one bum deal but that's it.

I think that there is more to your ban.

The message comes up saying I have been banned for interfering with a sales thread... No other explanation and I can't ask cos I can't log on being banned of course .
To be honest I can't see what the problem is or was as all I did was ask for a price for the gun without the kit.. I then said as its being sold only as a package I would withdraw so other potential buyers could see I wad out..
I hardly ever gon in that forum anyway so no other reason to van me .. For what it's worth I couldn't really care about the ban but am curious as to what I did wrong...

Do you know the MOD that banned you ?? It seems odd as I have been on there for years and years and never really had a prob to be honest.... And I have had some real tear ups??

I didn't ask for these powers !

Charlie , I think they consider it to be a surreptitious form of bumping up the post .

I know it was probably genuine in your case , however its a generic solution to all their posts .

It should be a short term ban , probably no more than a week or so .

In future pm the seller if you are interested .

I was also banned for a similar offence a few years back .

Hi Charlie,
Just hope it's a life ban.

You'll be much better off in every way

Seen your post. You do have to watch your wording on there as retribution comes fast and you have no say in the matter.:

Does seem a bit harsh Charlie. I will have to have a wee look at rules on there as I do go on once in a while. I would also like to say I sold a scope to Charlie a while back and he turned up with the cash and was polite and easy to deal with. Better days ahead Charlie

and rightly so

fancy asking questions on a sales thread, your just supposed to buy it. end of. if its not right tuff luck

banes me that you have to buy something outright before you can ask any questions etc. should be able to register your interest and then ask your questions, if the deal or item isnt right then move on.

a few times i have been gazumped when trying to collect information, its not like we are stood in a shop and can see it is it.

i personally couldnt see any problems with your enquiry, find the ban a bit harsh. have you upset someone at sometime?
