Well, Tijs opened a thread in this section of the forum, "regarding the recent bans" or something like that. You guys are taking it well, but I don't think eveyone will.
Oh, and to make The Great Banning of '12 even funnier, soon after it occured the official stream of the album was posted
Come on, it's not that big a deal. I was banned too for a couple of hours for posting in that thread (although you're right that I had no idea that would happen), but it was just temporary, and like they explained, pre-emptive, so it's their job anyway. Your Creed prank is classic, though
Linking to Creed should be bannable offense at any time.
Manic Subsidal, your ban has been lifted.
It is impossible to deal with it so fast, especially if it comes unexpectedly. You were unable to use the forums for 6 hours, 7 tops.

We needed some time to deal with it to judge everyone individually in a fair way.
Once we reviewed all posts as individual posts, and looked at who didn't do anything wrong, we lifted the bans and apologized for what happened to you.
I was also banned for a couple of hours, and I don't see that it could have been done in any other way. But of course I was surprised to be banned cause I didn't think I had done anything wrong, which 6 hours later was confirmed that I hadn't when my banning was lifted
But I agree with Manic subsidaI that the information about not asking for and spreading the leak could have been clearer. Where are they to read, exactly? I can myself draw the conclusion that one shouldn't post links to leaks, but maybe it's not as obvious to everyone.
It has been said over and over on many threads about the new album. But really, aside from that, it really, REALLY obvious that you cannot post and ask for leaks in their own website. If you can't figureout by yourself it's a bit of your issue too.
The ban thing then has been explained, I was sorry to read some good users were banned, but then the mods explained what really happened.
A sticky thread about not posting and ask for leaks is like throwing a cigarette over straw and pretending to have a sign that said it woul go on fire...
Manic, please stop... I like and respect you as a poster here, and you're killing that for me :-/ Whining about moderation here is pretty much the lamest thing a bbs member can do.
