    Question Banned!?!?

    Rev. Hayes has been banned.




    But can anyone tell me why?


    Is is possible that Club Polk banned him solely for entertaining the idea of replacing his SDA 2As with Vandersteens?

    All his other posts seem innocuous enough........

    Usually they delete the post that gets the person banned. Hopefully he'll be back.

    I assume you are he,but I have no answer if that was the last post before the red letters appeared.Nothing out of line was posted in that thread IMO.

    Oh he's back alright.

    But not as Rev. Hayes. Rev. Hayes has been banned permanently with no explanation.

    Yeah, this is Ashley Hayes and I am unaware that I have anything to "own up to."

    What exactly did you say to get banned? I don't think it's anything about the Vandy thread.

    We talk all things in lives and this club is very tolerant to all sorts of weirdos and not easy for one to get canned.

    Take a look at any of my prior posts. I am not the sort to create needless confrontation but I feel that I have been sorely mistreated by being banned without explanation.

    I sent visitor messages to the moderators under my current screen name and have not received a response. I know they are busy too and I should have waited longer before I started this thread but its been a long day and this was the proverbial straw.

    I am not just trying to stir it up here I am honestly looking for understanding.

    Maybe because you came on here referring to youself in the 3rd person...or...you were trying to "fool us" as to your true identity...

    No one....I repeat, NO ONE has ever been banned for not-having, not-owning or not-liking Polk Audio loudspeakers. So don't even think about using that as a scapegoat excuse.

    I see you as banned by Polk Audio HQ. I'm not sure what you did or said but that's from as high up as it gets. Perhaps it was a mistake but I'd suggest you PM Kenneth Swauger or PatrickC instead of starting a hoodoo about it and not taking the time to contact them in the first place. There's no need for a thread about it.

    Sorry, good luck in your audio journey.

    I apologize if I came across as attempting to "fool" anyone.

    I thought for certain that it would be absurdly obvious that I was indeed the referred to member.

    Rev... most forums don't take kindly to joining under another name after being banned.
    Ludicrous gibs!

    Then why would you refer to yourself in the third person from the original post? Why not take my advice and check back tomorrow. I don't think they'll be a rally in your honor for at least a year or so.

    My reference to to Vandy thread was really meant tongue in cheek.
    It was simply the last thing I posted and thus the only thing that I could have done to get banned. I don't actually think Polk would do that.


    As stated above I have sent messages to Patrick and Kenneth. I did so before starting this thread. I did not hear back. It is likely I didn't wait long enough.


    You are right, I should stop this thread now before I actually deserve what I got.

    You're annoyingly clownish enough to create a new account to whine about it, therefore I'm glad whoever your former account was got banned.

    You should PM/Email someone and ask politely if you feel you were wronged.

    Highly subject to debate, but thanks.

    Rev. - Just relax....give them some time to respond ok? I checked your last month or so and didn't see anything that stood out, so I'm not sure why it happened. It could have been as simple as a spam mixup.

    Moderators,

    Please delete this thread and the Why? account. I'm done being angry and this has only served to upset and offend other members in good standing whose opinions I have grown to respect. Suffice to say that I can sit quietly and enjoy reading the posts here at CP from here on out just as I did for months prior to joining.


    Thank you,
    Ashley
