    Why is Bountyhunter not able to log in today because this site says he is a Spammer?

    My apologies for the confusion: I was actually inquiring about the other site which is Electro-Tech:

    http://www.electro-tech-online.com/

    I asked Audioguru because I thought he was also a member there, his name is listed on their front page. Problem is, the Electrotech site has suddenly locked me out as a "spammer" and I didn't even know what that was until I looked it up.

    I asked Audioguru if he was still able to log onto their site. Obviously, I have no way of asking anybody on that site since I am locked out. This site is the only place I could communicate with anybody.

    I recommended a different site via PM to another user. I didn't know they had a feud going.

    Yes, that is the given part of the premise we all know.

    The point is I have no idea why I was abruptly banned for "being a spammer". I don't spam, I have never broken the rules, they screwed up big time and I was just curious as to why and/or if they care. Clearly they do not..

    Obviously, because I can't post there I can't ask them what happened.

    I guess I will delete the tag for that site and put it into the morons-R-us folder. Here is the message it now posts:

    Should be no loss to you though. Even though I'm also a member there, AAC is a much better site!!

    HORRAY!
    The administrator and owner of Electro-tech does not know how Bountyhunter became banned but now he is unbanned and they are talking about it.

    So things are fixed now? You don't need me to talk to anyone? ;)

    I'm a member on both sites. I'll probably ask the mods over there anyway. I've seen a few mix-ups like this before. I'm curious how it came about.

    I have been granted a benevolent unbanning for crimes I still have no idea were ever committed.:confused:

    My curiosity is why I wanted to know the reason.

    Had a similar experience in a engineering forum. I never could find out the actual reason since I was unable to contact anyone alive. I finally gave up and learnt to live with the frustration.

    Good for you (and prospective power supply builders... :))

    I hate it when the police shoot you first before asking any questions.
    Maybe the Spammer was Mountyhunter and not Bountyhunter.
