Since here is not so much activity, I tried also to register in the fairtradetobacco-forum with the same username.

BEFORE I POSTED EVEN ONE WORD (!) they banned me without any explained reason and wrote that the ban will never be lifted.

I was so shocked that I asked a english native speaker if the word "permaculturer" has a pejorative meaning unknown to me.

And I thought it was a mistake, so I wrote them at least 6 messages without any responses.


I know how to grow my own tobacco, I wanted to exchange with others - if this is not possible, then it is ok.

But as being a moderator in the german tobacco forum myself for a long time, I know if someone has not done something terrible, we warn (at least one time, sometimes more) and when we ban we explain why (even though we state rules verry clear !) - because otherwise it would be against our understanding of respect and good manners.

It might be german mentality, I can´t help, but I feel deeply insulted by this !


So i really would like to know from an american :

Is this behaviour just Ok for you or would you feel offended by this too ?

(I know for example critizicing someone as direct as we do in Germany with friendly intentions is seen insulting by people from some regions in the US - so I think maybe for them their behavior towards me has nothing insulting, and I got this wrong)

Not to worry...
It's a good crowd over there.
Unless there is some thing about your address or name I can't imagine it's probably a glitch in the matrix.
Good luck with that, even Equifax has problems ! rc

When I see how Admins and Moderators act in the forum, I have the impression too, but I cannot deny the impression of my own experience.

Maybe it is just a accumulation of verry bad luck.

My email is the first letter of my first Name and my last name - My first and my lastname have nothing insulting in English.

Thank You, Rustycase.

But it is over one week now and I don´t think I will receive any answer.

I really would like to join this forum, but I won´t contact them anymore - it would have something like begging to me.

Wishing a good Sunday to everyone

Permaculturer

Well, okay...

..I had an opportunity to explain hugelkultur to someone the other day, when describing garden improvement work we have done here over the years that will be of lasting benefit...
Fun stuff !
Best
