    What illfounded21 said, but to add to that, it might be good to come at with the complete story so that mods know why and what... And remember, as much as he loves these forums, the mods are there to also keep things in order... Your friend need to read the TOS, so he doesn't jack up his account again.

    I think, there might be more to this story. Mods wouldn't Permanently ban someone unless he/she is a repeat offender or he/she has flouted some major forum rule. However, I can empathize with your friend, and if he has been banned by mistake, then you need to send PM to mods. Hope something can be done in your friend's case.

    we don't allow buying or selling of paypal accounts here; that's why your friend was banned.

    we don't ban people for simply posting in the wrong section.

    I agree. Especially newbies have this perception, and when they are banned, then they cry foul. I have had really good experience on this forum, and noticed that Mods on this forum are fairly understanding when compared to other IM forums.

    From the perspective of the banned it's clear that all bans are wrongly put on innocent people by these bloodthirsty mods. :sgrin:

    Go easy on OP, guys. I don't think he is doing anything except helping a friend out.

    We (the staff) never arbitrarily ban someone. We take
    banning seriously and there is ALWAYS a justifiable
    reason behind why a particular member was banned.

    Wiz, how about a second chance, am sure everyone deserve one, sure this was an honest mistake, post the wrong thing that shouldn't of been posted, not aware that you not allowed to post such a thing in the first place

    just my 2 cents

    I did not ban the individual in question, and a general rule
    among the Mods is that we never over-ride another Mod's
    decision. Only an Administrator can over-ride a Mod's decision.

    You need to read what he wrote not just what you want to see. Even you said that your friend was looking for verified paypal accounts - reguardless of whether he was looking to sell or buy, NEITHER is allowed here. He was not banned for attempting to sell, he was banned because he was trying to buy or sell paypal accounts - which is against our TOS.

    That was his mistake, not posting in the wrong forum.

    PS. I am not saying that he shouldn't be considered for a 'temp-ban' vs 'perma-ban' from the orig mod... I'm just clarifying why he was banned in the first place cause you seemed to have missed that.
