Banned for spam

  • Good morning, about a week ago one of my users spotted an increase in spam across the community. In final frustration at all this rubbish he reported one of the posts as spam. End result he was banned from the community for spamming.

    The really frustrating thing is that he had no communication about this and as denied acces no ability to redress the situation. Could you please consider your policy on this and explain why a member reporting spam got himself banned from what has been a useful source of advice





  • Yes and me too.  

    I reported a total of 8 postings as spam abuse on my first account (Ken Symicek) and it got blocked:  

    Thanks Office 368 Forum.

    They can't control the spam so they take it out on us!  

  • Looks like you used the same fix as me. I don't know how they can be so foolish as to block you, you have helped numerous users over the years and have a very recognisable identity.

    Hopefully we will all get a sorry soon

  • Hi,

    I'm  BACK,

    and thanks to 

    He did a wonderful job.  He actually delivers on what he says.  

    Office 365 needs more like him

    Thanks JRG.

  • Good news Ken, I have been talking to JRG and even referred him to your case, so hopefully he will get around to me as divsec in a while.


    Divsec aka WIngrave!

  • My original account has been banned for spam as well even though I most certainly have never spammed anything.

  • Hi GregMS,

    I would suggest you post a new thread about the detailed information of the issue you encountered and the steps you have done to resolve it, this is so we could focus on your questions and provide more specific solutions for you.
