The forum now has improved with more aggressive spam detection, along with automatic banning of accounts which are believed to be spam.

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.

The ban rules may need some fine-tuning, as we want to avoid false positives and also false negatives.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
Please post technical questions on the forum, not by personal message. Thanks!

Can a mod/admin please verify this account for him/her.

He doesn't look banned now. One of his recent posts had the word "lottery" in it. :P

I can't tell you how many spam posts we get from new users with that keyword in it!
