I got banned from a forum like 10 years ago. I made a new account, forgetting if it were the same forum, even...and I was banned again for a second account. :p
I wasn't even being bothersome this time around.
Forums are just a place to socialize, make friends, pass the time. I don't see why some people see it like it's a work place or something, or like it's a art museum, or a fancy place to eat dinner...or a Vegas Casino or something...
I understand a bann is a bann, but it was like 10 years ago, the site code didn't even remember me. :p Was it that big of a deal? I enjoy talking to people on occasion about Final Fantasy or this/ that...I wasn't causing trouble.
