A little harsh IMHO.

OP was in contact with me in the midst of the double posting and was advised not to post elsewhere.
She complied with that request from what I can see.

A secondary account although frowned upon seems like it was made to be able to plead her case.

Not SPAM in the true sense of the word by any standard.
Cross posting sure.

It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.

Private messages always works.  Report-to-moderator always works.

I have been banned...
...given a timeout.  Looks like three days.

Do you have any advise what I can do now?
Wait three days.

Or, ask politely for the timeout to be ended early.

And, stop cross-posting.

In my mind this is resolved.

However a point of order was made "In the event that your account is banned, and you believe you did not post spam, please make a new account and post a reply here giving the name of the banned account so we can investigate."

Yea the very first post in the whole thread...

AWOL

Back then, ban meant ban. ({sigh} How I yearn for The Good Old Days)

Now, you could just use the "report to moderator" control.
