    Was I slapped down? Tried to post and a picture of a strange woman appeared wearing a badge and riding some sort of motorized vehicle saying I wasn't allowed to post.

    Whatever it was, it wasn't your offer to hug Pcunix that did you in. That post is still there. big_smile

      That was a sincere offer, this GOPer is sensitive to the needs of others.

    The use of the words "idiot" and "moron" I think are the top two terms that get people in trouble around here. If you didn't use either of those, you won't be the first person left wondering why. smile

    24 hours is a very gentle tap. Some guy got 4 months; I can only imagine what he said to get that. Not to mention those permanent bans I've heard about.

      Nope, didn't use idiot or moron, I try and obey the rules. I am scratching my head but really don't care too much.

    I got banned once for giving a compliment..  I didn't phrase it well, it was interpreted as an insult and poof!  I was gone..

    Oh, and I think that's a Segway she is riding.,

      Segway, I believe you're correct.

    So I was banned from posting for 24 hours, I sent an email and asked why? I was told I was banned for self promotion. I sent another email and asked to be directed to my supposed self promotion, this is what I received back.

    Actually, this ban was an error on our part, and we apologize for the confusion.  I see that the ban is lifted now, so welcome back to the forums!

    Has this ever happened to anyone else? Are hubpages staff members posting in the forums as sock-puppets and when they don't like what you say they ban you? I'm just wondering not accusing. By the way, it took 4 days for them to answer.

      That is weird. 

      No, I don't think any staff is doing any sock puppetry.   I doubt they have time. It is almost certainly what they said - a silly error.

        Like I said I'm not accusing, I can accept what happened.
