What happened to you was complicated! So I'll explain.
Last week, you said or tried to say some things about LGBTQ+ that along with prior incidents like posting your birthday added up to a 24-hour ban. That ban was more intense as previously you'd tried to get around one by posting from other accounts, so it blocked any account on your internet connection from posting.
During this ban, you tried to create other accounts to get around it and one of them got flagged by a different mod and permanently banned (I didn't realize this). Once the 24-hour ban was up, you should've been able to post again but the perma-ban for the other account was still blocking all accounts using your internet network. I realized that earlier today and lessened the ban on the other account so it wasn't blocking you or any other account using your network anymore.
The moral here is...don't try to get around bans with other accounts! If you're given a ban for whatever reason, just take a break from the forum. I really don't like banning anyone, especially awesome members of the community like you, so I try hard to give the benefit of the doubt! But trying to get around bans is a big no-no.
Hope that explains it!
