I was banned today after my second thread ever. IP banned, can't even view the site after removing cookies. Even after being banned, you can google the right stuff and look at cached pages, you won't actually be touching the site and you can see enough to know how bidding is for a particular city. Very weird, I took her suggestions, got a room, thanked her, but couldn't go through AB because I have my PC configured to block all ad sites (bfast, doubleclick, etc). I sort of want to know why I was banned, but not enough to bother to email her.
