The self-proclaimed "computer expert" can't even post a link to their own website either. :D

Anyone smell spam?

Hello my Account "Voltage-Ranger" was banned. I wrote a demoprogramm for an Thermal-IR-Sensor and posted it under all Posts from people that had problems with this sensor. Technically maybe spam :( but my intention was to help people.

Is it possible to re activate the Account for Voltage-Ranger?

Technically maybe spam

Posting more than once IS spam.

I appreciate your trying to help, but it is better to make a new post describing your solution - or add it to the end of the most recent thread about the issue, only. Copying and pasting the same post into multiple threads is likely to arise the ire of people who then report you as spamming. One thread at least seemed to be quite old, so you were basically necro'ing a thread to post your stuff under it.

It looks like someone un-banned your other account.

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.

@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! 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 have gotten away with spam on other websites ...

Yes, well not here any longer. Any more shouting and you will be banned again.

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.

My account has been banned, Strange as I don't think I've ever made a post.. Quarter should be the account name

There is no account of that name registered.

When did you make that account?

My account has been banned

Please copy and paste the banning message.

Quarter should be the account name

Well, what name are you trying to log on under?

Sorry Guest, you are banned from using this forum! spam This ban is not set to expire.

i got the following message when i tried to access http://forum.arduino.cc/

The IP address you were using (123.231.122.165) emits a steady unrelenting stream of spam. Use a different IP address. Request your internet service provide terminate the miscreant's account.

That IP address is located in Sri Lanka. It is on quite a few spam blacklists. Complain to your ISP that by allowing spammers to use their service, other users who are legitimate are penalized.

I can log in using my ipad but not my pc.

What browser are you using? I'm not getting any menu bar with IE11, had to click on the avatar of another poster to get the forum to bring up the login screen just so I could log in.
