Hi

I guess I was banned because I had posted the same topic at multiple forum. I thought that it was necessary because it was applicable to all the certifications. It's not necessary that everyone from SCJP to SCEA browse the SCJP forum. I think I was not wrong.

did you ask any moderator by sending PM or mail ? you would have got the answer.There are very few rules on this forum to follow, might be you had violated one of them

let me tell you that we have one more rule to have proper display name.
A display name is first name and last name saperated by a space.

still you don't have a proper display name

There has been a lot of spamming in our forums lately and we started to get tired of deleting and moving threads so we started to just lock accounts of members who we thought were spamming.

Even though posting the same thread in multiple forums is highly frowned upon [slapping your hand], I think you might have been an innocent victim here. We can either unlock your other account or you can continue to use this one (if you fix your display name).

Let us know. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

It was me. Your multiple posts were all visible on the front page when I logged in this morning. Standard procedure is to delete the posts, lock the account, then figure out what's up. Shoot first, ask questions later

Note that when I blocked your account from posting, I also sent you a private message explaining this, so the matter could be settled in private. Did you check your PMs?

In any case, as I thought, your intentions were good, so I will unlock your account now -- but please don't do it again. Because it was of general interest, a single copy of this particular announcement could have gone in "Java News."

Hi All

Thanks Ernest for unlocking my account. First I could not reply from my ID to your PM because my ID was locked. Then I created an ID. Then I tried posting a PM to you from my new ID but your account was full. I am sorry I didn't had any intention of spamming. I only wanted that everyone should take the benefit of the offer. I completely forgot about the java news forum. I think that individual posts in the forum would be a better idea because that would be much more visible. I presonally don't visit the java news forum often. Probably now I should start attending other forums as well.

And yes thanks for unlocking my previous account as I couldn't think of any good Display name other than the one I have presently.
