Carma got banned?
Hi everybody long time me no here. Carma contacted me and told me she has been banned from the forum out of the blue, she has no idea why.:( She did say that she got some funny arabic messages before it happened, she wonders if it is something to do with that. She asked me to investigate for her.

A post got picked up in a spam sweep accidentally. It was already fixed. PM me if she's not able to login tomorrow.

Thanks Imaginary I just emailed Carma to let her know. :)

I got banned in a sweep the other day, too. I wasn't sure why but knew that this happens from time to time. I contacted RP but was reinstated shortly after messaging her, and then she told me I somehow got caught up in a spam sweep.

All is restored. Thanks guys! :)

Sometimes spammers create posts on threads rather than creating new threads, sometimes a legit poster is caught up in a spam sweep and we then "approve" the post. It can get over looked sometimes or deleted by mistake. When the posts are removed, the posters banned and the IP addresses recorded it sometimes happens that "real" posters get banned by mistake. It was me who did this the other day. Sorry for the inconvenience, the confusion and the anxiety it caused.
