First of all SCOOBY welcome to the Spyderco Forum And please try to be a little understanding because the Spyderco staff has had bad problems with trolls and troublemakers that they have had to run off in the past. It could be that your ISP or something in your e-mail addy that may have caught the eye of the moderators.

You might just respond to some other threads and get yourself established and then in a week or so try to do another thread on the same subject. Once you get about 50 to 100 posts and they see you are a normal contributor then I don't think you'll have any problems. You might try to send a PM (personal message) to Tazkristi who is one of the main moderators and tell her about your dilema. But I'm sure it's nothing but a misunderstanding.
Long Live the SPYDEREDGE Spyderco Hawkbills RULE!!
