I'm guessing your Halloween avatar was too scary.
It was pretty frightening wasn't it?
It is truly amazing the scenarios that run through a fellow's head when something like this happens. For instance recently we had a pretty sane and steady poster suddenly change his avatar to a nude picture of an underage girl. Result: instaban. Now it occurs to me, what if he didn't do it? What if someone got ticked at him and hacked in and switched avatars on him? Could the same thing have happened to me?
But I'm afraid sanity must prevail. We recently took on a few new mods and they are fond of doing IP bans along with the regular user bans on spammers. I'm betting one of those banned IPs was a bit more general than intended. It would not surprise me to find all of southwestern BC has been locked out. So that's my lead scenario atm.
Anyone else want to try their hand at some wild speculation?
