Not all places are as lenient as Guru3D with spam. Even if its get rich quick or make $500,000 a month from just clicking website deals. If people were interested they would be doing that already.

This reminds me of someone from couple of days ago at a forum I moderate. He posts 8 times with a referral to "making money for searching" yes... same topic and his last two post were something about what the whole forum was all about and he said he was sorry about the spam and something along the lines that he likes that website and it gives you money while you search... same difference... Ban hammer!

I don't care that i got banned, its just that they could have given a warning before a ban or something to that effect.

Doesn't matter anyway, you can always make a new account lol.

People who register only to spam are banned on sight here as well. No warnings.

If you're a long-time member and post a link like that, then yes, you might get lucky and get a warning first.

yp, i was a member for over 5 years and all i got was a straight ban for life without a warning.

if i had a history of spam then i agree ban, but with a 5 year clean record LOL.

How do i check how long i've been with guru3d? i think its about the same. I know i registered before i did on nvnews.

Ya nVnews is a sad site. I registered there long ago and never had before and yet my email address was banned. Tried other recently created e-mails and they were banned too. Then weeks later they replied to me and I told them to shove it. They said, they thought I was a bot. Whatever.... Rage3D is another bad site.

Yes well, I don't think there's much more discuss here. The OP can learn from his mistakes and move on.
