I got Banned
« on: December 05, 2010, 09:34:15 AM »
Yeah, I got banned...

I put a blog on wunderground and was advertising my blog with my posts, and I guess they thought I was a spammer. I tried writing to them, but hey have not responded.... :sad:

At least I can still see the weather on there.

Well, using posts to advertise your website or blog is considered bad manners in most places.

I would second that!  Asking other members to check websites or providing links that are of interest and beneficial to forum users is IMHO far different than continuous soliciting for hits to one's website.
