Why was I banned?

Clearly, this is iamadragon.

Suddenly, I was banned. I don't see any reason why.

I read the "Website Announcements" thread, where some speculated that I was ccstate4peat, since he and all of his other accounts were closed.

Well, I don't know what to say to that, besides that it's complete garbage and that I am quite obviously not ccstate4peat. What do I have to do? Try and argue that I'm not?

I think it's reasonable to expect some kind of reason why I was banned at the very least, if there is in fact a reason and it's not just some kind of random event, and I shouldn't be reinstated.

The only reason I can think of is that I had a comment towards mongeese get deleted, but the same thing has happened to others who have not been banned as a result (plus, that would just be a weak reason.)

So yeah, what?!

I think you should file a feedback report asking the mods that question.
: If you weren't new here, you'd know not to feed me such attention. This is like an orgasm in my brain right now. *hehe, my name is in a title, hehe* (http://www.debate.org...)

Just in case I get into some BS with FREEDO again about how he's NOT a narcissist.

So... what's there to destroy evil inside of and above the constitutional government?

I have never seen mods post on the forum or do anything with forums except post that one time in one thread in the debate.org category talking about how the forums are now open.

Yes, multiple people. Not only do they often use the same computer I do (coming over, if I have my computer somewhere) but they also probably use computers with the same IP as I do sometimes, if we're in the same area (school, something like that.)

Their accounts are all fine, though, so I don't know what the deal is.

Can you name the specific accounts? If not, it sounds very suspicous and it just seems like you have multiple accounts.

Your claims seem legitimate. Sometimes the administrators make a mistake like this. Usually the account is returned if the claim is legitimate, as it yours seems to be. Good luck.

JMichelle, Molinjir.

Neither is very active. They both have fake information, just like my own original account.

Good enough for me. The admins/mods should let your account be re-opened.

Your account was closed because you ignored my several warnings to stop insulting other members. Of course, you already knew that didn't you?

No, I did not know that. To my knowledge, I have only received one email, just with this banning (upon checking, at 10:22 AM today, though I have no idea what timezone that is), about insulting other members.

I don't check my email much. However, just yesterday, I went through my hundreds of Debate.org emails. I do not recall any of them pertaining to bad conduct on my part.

Whatever, then. If it's such a big deal, I would abstain from it with a reinstatement of my original account.

I guess it's your choice. Thanks for your snide comment.

Bump. I would like for this situation to be resolved, somehow.

Phil didn't ban your new account like he would if you were a V-bomber. If you refrain from insulting others, I'm sure you'll be fine. I think your okay unless you had a few debates you really liked.

I have a feeling he was a multiple account vote-bomber.

My example:

I was losing 56-70 right until iamaphoenix was banned. Now, I am winning 56-35. Coincedence? I think not.

A lot of the vote-bombing on my account was recently removed, as well. Of course, it might have been because many accounts have been closed recently.

And it probably had to do with iamadragon/phoenix's IP address.

...and now I'm losing a debate I was winning, and I thought I rightfully won...not usually something that's out of the ordinary on this site, but it's past the voting period.

That makes two or three I've "lost" that I won. Meh, it happens.

You were banned because i reported every time you called someone a "Douche" or another name. Which was frequent.

The same thing happened to me, except I was losing and then I was winning.

Hahahaha.

But yeah, I just don't think insults from some completely anonymous stranger should really be anywhere close to a big deal. If people are really getting all "insulted" when iamadragon calls them a douche, then they really need to grow up -- as far as I'm concerned, being called a name by some strangers over the internet is hilariously trivial.
