Do you think rules on PeerCommons are fair?

I think they are fair and if kicked/banned I deserved it.

Could viruses on my computer contribute to my ban??? I'm just totally confused. I used to go to that chat room all the time a couple of years ago and had only recently came back on?? I only used it like 4 times in the last month, and god knows the last time i used it before that. And i always followed the rules of the chat room. except for the occasional caps lock. So is this just a lost cause or will i ever be allowed back?

Please reread the second part of this post.

Again, i apologize for the inconvenience, but i cannot allow the intended offender to return to the network..

Okay, it strangely seems to be working better since i said something on this board. :D I did the scan, found a bunch of cookies and one mild spyware app, all of which i have deleted. I am requesting removal from the ban, and I would (since I like feeling special knowing that i have a "dynamic ip adress" lol) do the ip scan thing, but i know i would be at that all night. I will, however, try that later on and PM u guys on that just in case it becomes an issue later on. I really appreciate all of your help!

I am thinking that somehow i was banned from the server i just cant figure out why. The message i am getting when i try and connect is Connecting to chat.frostwire.com (6667)
————————————————————
Closing Link: [myipaddress] Z:Lined (Botnet)

I took out my ip address of coarse but if needed i can send it in a Private message. The nick i was using at the time when i was suddenly disconnected is Lostinthought. I Have logs of all the rooms that i had open and i had not even said much when i got kicked.

The ban was lifted once I tried it out again a few weeks ago.

I just now tried going back on to see if anyone could help me figure out whats wrong with my cell phone but I have been banned again! lol what's going on? My nick is PretentiousFemale but I am not registered. Can you give me information on how to do that once the ban is lifted? Maybe that will help prevent this from happening again

@CaliforniaRaisins

Hi, Sorry for the lack of response. The ban lift mentioned applied in fact, I think, to FakeName. It is possible the IP you posted from in your first four messages was un-banned, but your latest post came from a different IP address (close but not the same).

I would ask you to check with your ISP whether you can have a permanent IP address, or what their policy for changing IP addresses is. I think some charge extra for this. As already explained, we are anxious to keep a particularly undesirable chatter off the network, and sadly this is affecting you. So please have a word with your ISP and ...whilst I make no promises, we will see what we can sort out when we know a little more.

According to my records, the ban was removed six minutes before you posted. ;)

I got banned? I registered my name as Trinity, when I saw frostwire had a chat room I found my name had changed to trinity t336. I went to change it in tools, to trinity star, found that I couldnt, so I changed it to trinity_mirage_star, didn't like the name, to long, so I changed it to a shorter version Trinity_Blaise or star, I forgot, lol. Next thing I know, Im banned from all chat rooms. :lol:

The message could not be sent. The message was either blocked or you may not be allowed to communicate in this room :cry:

Can someone let me know why? I can't communicate in any room. I only just joined too, lol.

I would suggest you use a nick other than and not including Trinity which is a reserved nick which you may not use as it is registered.

Awww cela est injuste, got a ban again. Spelling error.
English is my third language, Io parlo francese e italiano. Non è giusto a coloro hanno l'inglese come seconda o terza lanuage

http://i1093.photobucket.com/albums/i423/HarlequinStargem/spellingerror.png

word was suppose to read countries, but I forgot the "o".
I change my name, get a ban, I misspell and get a ban ... sigh.

LOL you were victim of the Scunthorpe affect ... (a town in England which is banned from so many searches). You were only kicked ... and you can rejoin just by typing /join #main ... if you are kicked three times then you are banned for 12 hours , but I'm afraid the bot is impersonal in his actions.
