got banned to day, I think there was a miscomunication

i was banned today on the irc channel after I mentioned DDOS. I understand how this may raise a red flag for admins on both the Forums and IRC, and I respect that. I was in the middle of asking a question. It was some thing like this "i really need help, I have a tf2 server and I am currently being DDoS-ed" and after that I was banned my next line was about to be "Does anyone have any suggestions on how to prevent this or limit the amount of bandwidth taken up?" If I violated any rules please tell me because I would love to know!

I am sure this was just a miscommunication. Thanks for hearing me out!

my nick was teh_spartan.

You normally wouldn't get banned from the server no matter what you're talking about (well, within reason). I don't have any privs on IRC so I can't help you, but you should speak to Monica, Dotty, or Weekend for your best bet I think.

As for the link, I'm removing it, because although it does support your post (well, it makes it more likely that you aren't lying about the server at least), we still don't allow advertising, which that last line is meant to do. It's not a big deal, but just keep in mind that no advertising on the forums is allowed.

Are you talking about a ban from the IRC server, or from a particular channel such as #help or #hackthissite?

According to my backlogs, he was banned from #hackthissite.

The exact lines:
(01:35:56 PM) #hackthissite: mode (+b *!*@HTS-B5956CED.nycmny.fios.verizon.net) by BhaaL
(01:35:57 PM) Teh_spartan left the room (Kicked by BhaaL ("Let the Bodies Hit the Floor" was originally written as Chuck Norris' theme song. ? 1165 (BANNED))).

From what I read, his conversation didn't seem earning of a ban.
