Why am I banned from contributing?

Thank you,

Dear RPCV,

You have not been banned from PCOL. We moderate all messages on PCOL because
we receive several hundred spam messages for posting every day. When we find a
large number coming from the same IP address, we ban the address and sometimes
legitimate posters are affected.

Effective immediately we have removed the ban from your ip.

Best Regards,
