I kind of thought the same thing- that I was hacked and some advertisements were sent or posted.  I was also going over in my head my recent posts disagreeing with people.  I was wondering why I didnít get an explanation.  Well, Iím very relieved now.  It really got me wound up a little bit.

I thought for sure that I said something in the Judge Kavanaugh thread that angered Roy and he banned me. Lol.😂

@byennie

Do you think it's just a coincidence that today's spam hack happened on the same day that Facebook got hacked?

I figured it wasn't just me because it was so random and odd.  But I also was concerned that my account got hacked and someone had posted a ton of spam posts on it.

Thanks Byennie.

Today we experience some odd ban behavior where virtually all members were receiving "banned" / "spammer" messages when attempting to login.

I was able to undo the suspect ban, we're not sure atm what the cause was but everyone please rest assured you weren't personally banned. Even my account was experiencing the same issue.

Please if you see this crop up again drop an email to ("admin") ("at") celticsstrong ("dot com") so I can look right away.

Thanks & back to Celtics talk...

Any other way to contact? Twitter maybe?

It would be good to have a link to that email on the site.

Sure glad I wasn't banned! My heart dropped when I saw the message, I thought someone had hacked my account.
Any odd typos are because I suck at typing on an iPhone :D

I thought it was hilarious when byennie got back to me and told me that he, the site webmaster, had got banned too.

I shamed myself all afternoon for something I didn't do? Thanks byennie.

Couldn't believe it when I saw I was banned for spamming...I only have a little over 500 posts, all of those on the old blog, and only two or three here so far.

Accusing me of spamming is like believing Spock would do jello shots off an Orion Slave girl! :)
