Fedora: Banned?

I recently switched from Kubuntu Linux to Fedora KDE and have really been enjoying it. I tried to join the Fedora Forums today. Later I logged in to the forums to see what was going on and received this message:

vBulletin Message
You have been banned for the following reason:
No reason was specified.
Date the ban will be lifted: Never

What did I do? I’m literally stunned. I hadn’t even posted a message yet! It’s odd and really inconvenient.

This has never happened to me before. I belong to a number of Linux forums, and highlight Linux on this website often.

FOLLOW UP: We have Jim Dean to thank for messaging one of the Fedora Forum’s administrators, who said it had been an error and the problem is now corrected! Thanks, Jim!

    1. Well, Jim. I don’t know if it was you that did it or what, but mysteriously I am no longer banned from the Fedora forums. That was very weird and disheartening, especially for a guy like me who means no harm to any Linux forum whatsoever!


      1. I pmed a admn and he told me he had sent you an email. It was an error and he fixed it.

        The forum software was updated recently and maybe there are still some issues. I don’t know as I’m not an admin there.

        It is a good community and worth being part of. So welcome to Fedora 🙂


      2. Thanks Jim. Long ago, before RedHat had an IPO, that was my very first installed Linux OS. I even had a RedHat sticker for the rear window of my car. I also, somewhere back then, migrated to Fedora. However, it’s been so long now that the closest I ever got was installing it in VMbox. No more. Fedora KDE is what I’m using.
