We have had an onslaught of spambots lately and, unfortunately, there is sometimes "collateral damage". If you are banned for an unknown reason or are banned as a "spammer" and feel it was in error, you can take a couple of different steps to get "unbanned". 1. If you are personally in contact with any of the forum moderators, reach out to one of them. 2. Post a message in the Chaz Facebook group. Include your username so we know who to unban. 3. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your username and a request to have the ban investigated. We moderators struggle with keeping the board clean of spam while still being able to enjoy the friendships and community that has been grown here. We apologize for any hurt feelings when one is caught in a "spam sweep".
