Hello,

There is another user, hxtop, who has been banned from the forum for some reason. I chat with him occasionally and I am wondering if there was some mistake in banning him? He runs hxtop.com for Chinese Bitcoin news... so why was he banned?

If a mod could PM me about this I'd greatly appreciate it, thanks!

I banned him because he was spamming bitcoin discussion with his website, he bumped close to 12 threads in 10 minutes with the same c/p reply which was just an ad for his website.

Hehehe gotcha. Okay... is there a way he could be re-allowed? I can probably get him to promise not to do that again.

He was warned several times about it and he was banned once for 7 days, but he continued spamming. 23% of all posts he's made have been deleted. I probably won't unban him.

Didn't know he'd also been banned before. Knowing all that I probably wouldn't either, I seriously doubt anything can get him to stop if all the warnings and bans in the past didnt.

He just went way too far yesterday, he should know better than that, especially given all the warnings he's had previously. He already asked me via pm to be unbanned and I said no.
