Yes you were banned, but you are not banned any longer. In January I went through and tried to find all the folks that were banned in that period of time and un-ban them. If you keep in mind the huge forum traffic and constant attacks we have from people, it was not easy to tell who was doing what. So many of the accounts that were banned, were simply deleted, allowing the person to rereg with their orig nick.

One of the forums that was posting lists of bannees, was hoped to be of help, but they were not. I think the last list they posted publicly and some new sources used as fact showed over 60 nicks being banned.

I went back through the list personally, one nick at a time. Out the list of 60, I could only located 16 banned nicks and that was using a pretty wide cross reference as well.

Of those 16 , five were banned for posting porn or flaming profanities.
Yeah, I did figure that list got kind of overblown...but I also think there might have been some un-banning before you got to it in January. I don't know if that's possible or not, I have no clue how your staff/admin structure works. (And you have me sympathies on the "huge forum traffic" thing, I've been learning a LOT about that at DH lately. )

Could you please supply the link to your apology? I really didn't see it and would like to.

As a result they seem to have over-engineered in some aspects creating a power-hungry monster which is going to be very expensive for them to manufacture. We have a beautifully balanced piece of hardware that beats them on pure performance, cost, scalability, future mobile relevance, etc. That's all because they didn't know what to aim at."
