Yesterday I was tempted to try a different forum to meet new people and I saw a category there about "Writing Articles Online"...I thought hey! I have a great article about tips on writing articles online! And so I posted my link to it to share it with the people there... Well, they called me every nasty name they could think of - spammer being the one that bugged me the most. (I AM NOT a spammer!) Then they deleted my discussion and banned me from the forum. I couldn't believe it. I thought I was providing them something useful and of value and contributing to their discussion of writing articles online. Here is the link I used that caused all of this: http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/689125/7_tips_for_writing_great_online_articles.html Anyways, I am never straying from MyLot again...You guys here are so nice and no one ever yells at me for sharing something with you that could be useful! Have you ever used a forum besides mylot? What was your experience? Have you ever been banned from a website because of smething you posted?

I learned the hard way! It is stupid. I think a lot of them were just a little too high on their horse about the whole thing. I will be loyal to mylot forever from now on. No more other forums for me! (Well, maybe I will use a few others, but they have nice people...not a ton of psycho people over posting a link!)

Haven't been banned before. most of forums if you put post don't obey their principle, will not be banned. Did you ask them why banned your account?

I don't even want to go back there! If they are that sensitive and unreasonable I want nothing to do with them!

Not yet! But I am pretty careful what I post and usually do not jump right in. Once someone posted a really nasty discussion that I later heard was supposed to be about me, but the person had her facts wrong. What I was accused of doing was, in fact, a really good thing that took courage for the person who did it to have done. In fact, I had given some thought to maybe doing it myself, but someone else got there first. Since one person got a whole bunch of others stirred up and like angry bees they were going to to strike out at someone, I reasoned, "Oh, what the heck! Let them think I was the one who did it because they are not going to believe anything I say anyway and then at least they won't be going after the nice person who really did do it." So in that way I got to help out after all.

You are right how some people act like a swarm of bees :) I can't imagine anyone ever lashing out about you though! That's kind of funny to me...glad it all worked out in one way or another!

Banned for posting something!?!? I guess they don't want to think outside their brain. Well, don't worry about it, as a current AC writer I'll champion you. Read this girl's stuff, its good!

I am a member of a couple of forums, but they are specialised category forums and not the same type of general discussion that Mylot is. The only one I use much is concerned with Linux, which ca be useful if I wish to find out how to configure certain factors in Linux. I can only assume that the forum you refer to has a strict no link ruling because the link that you posted was not a promotional link.

I guess in their eyes it was promotional because I wrote it? Who knows? Mylot here i stay!

wow, thats was very shocking! I don't get it why they banned you! ANyway, I have tried some site but since I don't know a lot about it, I also didn't stay longer and I was not banned too! I just decided to stop and just focus here in Mylot. As much as I want to earn more but, I don't think so I can manage it with my limited time!

It is hard to find time for more than 1 forum! I do like mylot the best, it can be addictive here :) I am so glad to see my discussion still here, even if I did post a link, lol.
