Thank you for the reply.
Can you tell me how to check if that's the case?
You can try looking here
and you can change the refxxx string to get to other reflectors. You can search for your callsign in the reflector pages.
I don't know how you fix any ban, people have said to contact the admins but I don't have any addresses for them as such. I think they like to play high and mighty, but maybe someone else knows.
