I was subscribed to this forum many years ago. I think a few years ago they removed all subscriptions or there was an email asking if I wanted to continue being a member. I never replied to it.

Anyway, I tried to reapply using the email account I used to use and it says I am banned. I have tried contacting them but there is no response as of yet (Wednesday I sent the message).

I am wondering if it is because my name, 3246251196, is spam-ish.

What do you think I should do other than use a separate email account? I would rather use my primary so I get updates.

I mean, I've no idea. If your previous email address was terminated for some reason, my guess is it would be impossible to use that same address to generate a new site registration. I've no idea how to contact the admins of that board. They don't make any of that info available as far as I know.

I think you have to start over. It's also possible you'd have to use a different username, too. If your account was killed simply due to being inactive (which would surprise me, but it can happen at some places) you should be fine. If it was a really egregious situation, some folks can even get their IPs banned which is sort of a game a whack-a-mole.

Get a different eMail address and move on.
It’s hard for those admins to do their work. Sometimes they do something that may seem inappropriate for us. But who knows what they have deal with every day.
