Title: So, what happened?
Post by Kyata on 09/23/20 at 00:50:17
Coleiosis here.  Apparently when I visited this site today, it says I got banned from the forums.  How?  What happened?  Was there an error?

Therefore, I had to make a new account.

Yesterday, DJ Normality (aka Sharp) was banned from the TMA Discord server. He responded by sending hatemail DMs to some members and posting a ton of spam in the TMA forum (similar to what he did ~2 years ago). I subsequently recycled the forum spam and banned his account.

Also banned some older dormant accounts that appeared to belong to him. Perhaps one of them was banned in error.

@Kyata
Would it be possible to PM me the username of the account you're having trouble logging into? FWIW your Coleosis account's username/email address are in good standing. Maybe try logging in again just in case it's working now. Btw I just sent you a friend request on Discord.

Just wanted to give a heads up that this has been sorted out :)!

What happened is that I banned a mix of usernames and email addresses... some of which were very short/simplistic. Turns out that YaBB evaluates banned email addresses as suffixes (as opposed to exact matches). So for example, banning "a@gmail.com" would also cause "this.is.the.letter.a@gmail.com" to be caught in the crossfire.

That's what happened with Coleosis' account. Its email address matched one of the newly-banned email suffixes. As a result, I've unbanned email addresses that are too short/common-looking.

Username bans appear to be exact and not treated as suffixes. So all of those are still in place.

At least this time the site didn't get nuked.  ::) Good thing I didn't log in hungover again.

I bet that's what he was hoping to do. Have that shit happen again.

It was kinda my fault cole. I have been doing leg work and spreading the discords to the TM community at large. Trying to keep a dying community some what untied. So I linked the discords in the FB community knowing damn well Brandon sharp was there. But I thought after years his dumb ass moved passed the transgressions on a god damn internet forum, but I was wrong.

He personally attacked a few members and spammed this forum. Which I hope he wises up.

If he had something to say or an issue to push he should of come to me instead of involving everyone else.
