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...

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

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

It's a screen shot of my Fritzing drawing.
So why not just upload the image as an attachment to one of your Replies. See this  Simple Image Guide

By the way most of the Fritzing drawings that are uploaded here are useless for the purpose of showing wiring connections on a project. A photo of a simple pencil drawing is almost always more informative.

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

Hello, my account with email {redacted} got banned after first post I made to thread https://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=603481.0
I am not sure if I break any rule, or because the thread is already marked as solved. But I think my post might help others in the same searching as I was. And if it was not meant to be replied anymore, shouldn't it be set to read only ?
Or if any other reason for the ban, please let me know. Because I did not get any warning or message about it.

Thank you in advance for the help.
