well, i mean establish yourself as a member, contribute a little, show your not really a spammer, but a true person, then drop the bomb on them, instead of doing it in your first post ever lol.

Personally, I don't think making that thread was smart. Tom probably could have appealed before that. Sure one of their members made a dick of themselves with the "Fook You" but still...

And I hope you guys are just joking about spamming them, but just in case: If you do spam them, I will ban you. We are not 4chan.

Bad idea. 4Chan or /b/ is not your personal army.

I agree. At the end of the day I can see where they were coming from, on the face of it it may well have looked like spam to them. I'd certainly have to think twice about whether such a post here was spam or not coming from a first time user.

I'm not saying their reaction was correct, but realistically if it were me in your situation I would've contacted a moderator, explained the situation, and perhaps complained (formally) that I didn't think their methods were fair or very reasonable - perhaps asking them to introduce some form of warning system before an outright permanent ban. You'd be surprised at the reaction this approach has sometimes - it's definitely got a higher success rate than starting other threads saying how crap they all are, and may even get an apology from some of the more reasonable mods / members.

I daresay some members of that forum are looking back at this thread now and thinking they did the right thing. In a jokey sense or not, talking about spamming them, going to 4chan and creating other threads slagging them off really isn't going to give the best of impressions...!
