To make a long story short...I answered a post about using adblock. I was kindly PM'd by Brink that it was a no no to do so on that forum. So I edited my post and openly apologized for it. Then PM'd a member of the same thread about what he posted about adblocking tips. In the PM I mentioned that there were some Nazi dickheads that have a hair trigger on banning people. No sooner than I sent the PM, I went to anther forum real quick, less than 5 minutes, came back to find a message saying that my password was out of date by 707 days and to click the "here" link. So I did and was smacked in the face with the message "you've been banned". So I'm positive that those so called private PM's are not so private....at least on that site.
