I am still to hear any response from Raymonds Mod regarding whether the IPs of two accounts I created match with all others they are talking about????

Also, On Raymond forum, They are talking about same posting style as one of the reasons for them to believe I am the same guy?

What you guys think? Is it a good reason?

I don't think so :)

Well, for one, it's hard for any of us to say who were not actually involved which is why I've been silent on this for the most part.

My " personal " take is this... I don't know what happened, all I know is you seem like a decent person and have never shown any harshness in any way. Many people have had disagreements on forums and get banned, that isn't a rarity by any means, even if they don't mean it at the time, things happen, get heated, etc...

Looking at it from a moderator's view as I was one on more than one site, we didn't go by what could look like the same WAY a person would post and I won't mention which site, but the Admin ran a test on us and had other posters reply, leaving us to decide if it was the same person under a different name and through our personal views which we thought it was.

BUT, In reality, it was not and most of us could not distinguish between who was who so that can be a very false way to decide if someone is the same poster or not. We also ran into many instances of same IP addresses and ended up doing very thorough lookups due to dynamic IPs by ISPs, the same IP could be in one part of a state, then another part the next, had we banned it, an innocent would have gotten banned. If there is a longer timed run from that specific IP, then it's likely it's the same person as it will change from time to time otherwise. They mention about your birthday being the same, I don't know why, if you were someone trying to hide the fact of who you are, you would enter the same birthday and wondered if there was a default birthday set when people signed up, so if they don't enter theirs, it stays at whatever it's set to.

Ok, that said, if it was you or not, how long do they feel they should keep this going? I mean, even at other forums we had a ban time limit for many reasons and to keep it going, especially when you made a thank you attempt there this may be a bit harsh. So finally, either one of two things should happen here, either them telling you you will remain banned and not to come back or attempt it, or to let up on the ban and even if it was or wasn't you, to give you a chance to redeem yourself. The only reason I can see they wouldn't give you the time of day currently is due to competition.

In closing, I don't know what happened for sure, I know you as I do now and don't view you as a harsh argumentative type, and again, we all get our moments of anger and frustration, we are human and hope this all gets resolved. Obviously the moderators cannot do anything but hopefully Raymond or whoever will resolve this soon.

@PChammer

As you said, anyone who knows me will tell what kind of person I am.

That set aside, I did respect any forums mods to ban someone they feel good for whatever reasons and thats why First time I Didnt mind being banned as I thought I violated some of their forum rules.

But 2nd time, I felt something wrong as i didn't do anything at all.

Regarding that birthday, as i had said before I had never set any birthday until its a compulsory field and even if i set i would set some random birthday.

Anyway, For me its a closed chapter. I don't expect something from the MOds there too. I am happy here and happy building a better community with the help of you guys.

This thread here is due to only one reason, I dont want any reader of Avinashtech to get banned at Raymond's forum just because some day he may post something related to here at that forum.

Well, that's kind of what I figured on the birthday and wondered why someone who was hiding would set the same birthday, lol, that made no sense to begin with. Yep, all in all, I think you should have been let back in. It's obvious that regardless of what they thought, you are obviously not that person one way or the other. Even if it was you, "not saying it was, just stating" that would not be who you are now and any self respecting site would realize such a thing. Hopefully they will give you a chance though as even if you are happy here, it would be a resolve. I am very curious to see what Raymond has to say about it, I just hope cooler heads prevail and he can work this out with you.

Well, Lets wait and see if Raymond responds.

But till then we should forget this issue and move along.

Even after he responds, I would be happier here only as we can make this forum a much better place Smile

No update though, Just a reminder to readers of Avinashtech.

Do not post any threads related to Avinashtech posts on Raymond.cc forum or they may ban you there.

I am writing this again, as someone posted in a thread related to glary utilities there about our giveaway. I got to know when i saw the trackback in wordpress admin. But when i clicked it, i saw that the relevant portion got deleted. Perhaps mods there deleted it as expected. May have warned the user too .

May be we wont be getting any updates on this issue from them. Tongue

Well, not to diminish this or anything but re-reading, I found this disturbing...

Quote:If he wants to beg and grovel to get back onto Raymond.cc, to be lucky enough to be one of the ones allowed to post here, he?s wrong

I am sorry but any forum moderator or even owner who thinks that way, needs to seriously come back down to earth. The lucky ones are Raymond to have people "the ones who actually make it a site" post there, not the other way around. And I ask, what kind of life must someone have to fret over being a "lucky one" to post on any site? I say, don't worry, the REAL world IS out there, outside of Raymond.cc and life will go on as with any site. I like the internet and like working with some sites and helping others, however, by NO means is this any primary type life for me but it's still obvious to see by comments like that, cloud 9 has taken flight. I never heard of Raymond.cc prior, guess I was a, er... unlucky one? Wouldn't know, had plenty of fun without it.

@Paul

Yes you are right.

Anyway, as i kept saying the only reason this thread is here as I don't want any reader to get banned somewhere else due to my posts. Otherwise I would have just not even put this thread live.

Regarding that "lucky ones", yes you are right. They don't know what forum is made of. Its the members who make the forum and not the mods. That's why I keep saying, I don't own the forum, its built and run by members like you. Tongue

Another Update :-

The thread at Raymonds is closed now for comments. :roll:

Hi guys,

Been busy with work and an issue with my Sony mobile.

Really sad to hear that Raymond's site is causing trouble for you again.
Check your PM Avinash, i have sent you details about some trouble i had with them too.

PS. I am not participating in the Glary utilities giveaway on your site since i already participated in 4free's survey for 150+ keys a few days back.
Anyone who completes the 9 surveys were supposed to be given a key for Glary pro
(I am yet to hear from them, though) :-(
