I need a HUG

I haven't been on here for a long time but I always check on some of the beautiful people out here who make equally beautiful stuff for their weddings and baby. I joined another forum today and they flagged me down for "abuse" instantly! I was responding to the board manager and I wasn't able to send my response because they deleted my account already. I'm new to the forum... I didn't know the rules! And it wasn't like I was typing like a robot. I must admit that I'm not completely aware of the rules of forums even here in PW. Seriously, there are so many I can't possibly go through and memorize all of them especially because I don't post here daily and I haven't posted in a long time. They thought I was scamming them because I included referral links - doh! OK, granted I probably should've known that but I posted it on their "Bargain Hunter" board which by the way have no post of anything about getting any deals or bargains. I hate that site and I will never go back there again ever! T_T

Aw, that sucks!! I know, it's tough when you are new to a group and inadvertently make a mistake, happens to all of us!! I remember when I was new to PW and posted in the MF about selling a headband I never ended up using...I didn't know then that they have Classifieds for that :) I was kind of embarassed to be told they were taking my post down and moving it, but hey, they still kept me around!

I would imagine that groups that are really strict have probably been hit hard with spam in the past and so they go to the extreme, but it sucks that they automatically blocked your account without giving you a warning or something. Maybe you can email the site admin if you still want to join?

Hugs!!! You are always welcome here at PW :)

There was not even a warning or a reminder like, "Hey, that's not allowed." T_T

Thanks, Sammy_D! Hugging back. I had the same experience here at PW, and like you said, I was embarrassed that they took it down and moved it to the right board AND kept me around! That's why I love it here! You are always welcome no matter how long you've been offline. I emailed their admin and told them what happened but I will not go back there again.

 Sending hugs! It's hard when there can be so many rules like that! PW will help you-not kick you out- if something like that ever happens.
