When I logged in, I got this message:

Sorry Guest, you are banned from using this forum!
For security, your account has been locked. Email locked...@bitcointalk.org

I am not able to access forum from my account JustForex https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=468488, that is why I created this temporary account to ask, why was I banned.
I wasn't active lately, I don't have plagiarised posts which could be the reason for ban. So I ask you for explanation.
Or was my account locked as stated in second line? It's really confusing.

Was there anything else in the PM you got?  If you got banned for something like plagiarism or spamming, it will tell you exactly that.  If you got locked out for security reasons, like failing the security question when trying to log in, I'm not sure if they tell you that.  From what you wrote, it sounds like it might be something like the latter and hopefully for your sake it is.

The good thing is that if you did just get locked out, account recoveries are supposed to be much quicker these days.  If it was about 6 months ago, you could pretty much kiss your account goodbye.

Edit:
I don't think it's a PM, it's probably shown on the screen when the OP tries to log in.
Ah, gotcha.  The coffee has not yet kicked in, apparently.  And good luck to OP.  Sounds like he wasn't banned, just locked out for whatever reason.

Thanks for your reply.
Last time I successfully logged in was March 24. I changed password and email that day because I have problems with old email. I could log in after changing password without problems.
Next time I logged in was yesterday (March 27) and that text about account ban showed up immediately after entering password and clicking Log in.
I didn't get any email from bitcointalk in last couple of days. I didn't get any PM. I didn't try to log in with security question. I know my password.

Asking for further help. Thank you

Anyway, it says all there is to know. The account is locked, not banned for plagiarism or anything like that. OP - send e-mail to the provided address. Lock (no pun intended) this thread, there is no need for it.
