Banned from Kubuntu IRC chat

Asked by enjoi1216 on 2007-09-30

Dear Sir,
I got banned from Kubuntu IRC chat by the server host and i even went to freenodes website to look up their email address and phone number because i was on freenode chat for about 4 hours trying to learn how to modify linux and learn how to defragment my linux Kubuntu file system and i got banned and booted from the server. i tried to call freenodes phone number and all it does is play music and you wait and wait on the phoneline and no one answers i looked for freenodes email address and there isn't an email to reach the server host that booted me.I think that I deserve a chance to appeal to the server host and ask to be granted forgiveness upon my case that happened that night i was chatting on freenode and to be reinstated to chat again because now if i need support on Kubuntu Linux i can't seek the support that i need to modify the operating system.I just do not feel that i was treated fairly by the server host and if i did something wrong i didn't realize it that night and i deeply apologize with full regards and i'm just asking to be granted another chance to be able to get back on IRC chat.
Sincerely,
James K. Housefield

Join #ubuntu-ops on freenode and speak to them.

This question is poorly asked here on Launchpad as there is nothing we can do. Bans like this (open proxy) are clearly explained on freenode and it is there policy to do so. If you go to http://www.freenode.net you should get more information about this.

Also it's never a good idea to post a new reply to such an old question as it's been lost and many of us will never see them, best to post a new question.

Good luck,

Can you help with this problem?
