    I only post this because of Tapatalk and how it has caused me to start posting like crazy. I decided to join a forum I frequented over 2 years ago to catch up with old friends. I didn't assume me mentiong that my using a android device on VZW constituted as a "Major Advertising Violation". Here is the message I was sent along with post that got me banned.

    Ok, maybe me offering my assistance could, at a stretch, be considered advertising; however it is the same thing that I always say to people I havnt spoken with in awhile, " you got any tech questions, ask me...". I am sure I am not the only person who offers help freely. Furthermore the 6 points I got hit with fully prevents me from replying to the mod or posting in the correct thread to get admin help.

    What do the people od DROID land believe?

    My own personal thoughts are they didn't understand what you were talking about. On the other hand someone who doesn't understand smart phones might mistake this for advertising. They'd still be wrong, but I can see it.

    We usually will let off topic things go, well, off topic and I'm not trying to censor you from expressing your feelings but how other people run their forums is not something I think we want to get into here at the Droid Forums. So I am going to close the thread.
