If the title of this thread makes no sense to you, don;t panic, i'm not sure it makes sense to me but I'm not how else to describe this.
I signed up for a forum based in the uk just before Christmas last year, it's nothing special, just a general forum based around television and
Last night I was completely randomly and out of the blue banned. I wasn't particularly bothered, I was just going to log out of the website, delete
all my cookies from it and not bother going back.

Thank you in advance.
