    I tried accessing the forums today and got this message:


    An Error Has Occurred!
    Sorry MFB, you are banned from using this forum!

    Reason: Rips downloads section

    I dont know why Im banned and am obviously not guilty of ripping the downloads section.

    If anyone here is connected with MTDN, please help.

    I don't even know what "rip" means in this context.

    Woof was recently banned here, I believe, and in his case and in your case at MTDN, the reasons seem to be somewhat shrouded in secrecy, or at least they both sport a generous supply of FUD.

    My opininon is that, if users don't know why this happens, in simple straightforward terms, then others are bound to repeat the offence.

    I agree. If someone is to be banned from a board, they at least need a "This is why." statement.

    I get the banned message when accessing MTDN from my notebook. However if I use my Treo 650 to access MTDN, I get it and am able to to everything a registered member can. I sent a message to one of the moderators (SanDW). Hopefully she can help me out.

    With regards to the reason given, I dont understand why and how I can rip the downloads section.

    I was also banned with the same reason as yours but I didn't do anything other that browse.

    MFB - how will this affect your "release" of the JoranG ROM? Not at all?

    That is our policy here too, we also warn people before we ban them so they can improve their behaviour (1 post spammers excluded).

    Banning is something we only do as a last resort not something we enjoy.
    When a user is banned he is notified why, but probably could work it out for himself..

    This is good, but my opinion is that everyone should know why, not just the banee. Perhaps there might be a privacy issue but I don't see how since the offending behaviour would be publicly visible.

    In the case of Woof, for example, I have no idea why he was banned. I did see your retort to him saying he was warned, but those warnings were either private or spread through threads that I didn't read. So right now I don't know why this decision was made. This should be something upon which a bright public light is shone, not something done privately involving just the offending individual, IMO.

    Agreed, but be careful here, if you are disagreeing with a mod you will be banned for it.

    Is this new? I remember when Claire and Dutch were banned, they didn't know. Woof too, IIRC.

    I was banned for being critical of mod actions. Careful, you could be too. to the OP, I am on the mtdn staff and i'll look into your banning when I get home in couple of hours.

    I dont see you as banned. It does show that you have 0 posts though. I have asked of your status in the staff forum as I am not a mod and cant check it myself. More as soon as I know it.


    EDIT: This issue is being addressed. You should have heard back from the mod you emailed by now. If not let me know and I'll have them contact you.
