My other account is Clockworkmod. I was banned for spamming, without any notice. I do not know of any spam. I had 3 posts, all relevant and constructive. WHAT HAPPENED?

That other account has 16 times the word "idiot!" in its signature.
There are 3 visible posts by that account, by someone who doesn't seem to understand the difference between hardware and software serial ports on a chip, so that is for sure not the reason for being banned.

Your account (or even your pc) might have been hacked by some spammer, causing that other account to be banned now, and the spamming posts removed.
Also for sure, SHOUTING and SHOUTING will not help resolve this.
Have a look at "blink without delay".
Did you connect the grounds ?

@HELP-ME - are you the guy that posted:

I have gotten away with spam on other websites until a moderator viewed it, because their filtering system couldn't detect repeating sequences of characters, such as "Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato! Potato!

That's why you were banned. Now grow up and stop shouting at us in huge type.

I did not post about getting away with spam. I just discovered that my brother posted that "I got away with spam..." from my account as a prank.  Also, I do not have "Idiot!" 16 times in my signature. I don't think I even have a signature. It seems accurate that "I am the guy who doesn't know the difference between hardware and software serial ports...." You said I was unbanned, but I was not.

The signature of Clockworkmod does in fact have "Idiot!" many times in the signature. It still does. I suggest instead of using huge fonts to shout at us here, that you shout at your brother. You are expected to be responsible for actions taken when logged into your account.

You might point out to your brother than his "prank" got you banned from a forum you were interested in, and it wasn't funny.

I have converted your ban to a partial ban - you can read posts and are not IP or email-address banned. I suggest making a new user (well, you already have) and try to keep your brother away from the keyboard.
