Why Was I Banned?

No hotlinking allowed from whywasibanned. I'm seeing a broken image.

Odd; I see it myself, plus I see a number of other hotlinks from earlier posts.

It works if you have already viewed the image because it's in your cache. If you clear your cache (hold down shift and hit refresh) it will probably go away.

I saw it after following the direct link then it went away again when I cleared my cache. I've gotten into a habit of doing that whenever I post images in forums just to make sure what I thought I had posted was actually showing up.

Doh! Well, that explains it.

Here's the direct link - http://whywasibanned.com/wp-content/...

Even linking to the resource is banned! That's some serious bandwidth protection. I get a CloudSource error message clicking that link.

Anyone have a link to the page?

EDIT: nvm, if you copy/paste the url into the browser it pulls it up, but not clicking on a link for it. Hardcore.

Banned for a blue avatar!? It's a good thing I don't own an Xbox.

It's the hacking that's required to get it that gets you banned.
