I got Banned of Inbound for being Helpful (Fun Times)

Update: There’s a pretty massive discussion on Google+ where Ed fry has gotten involved, check it out (after you’ve read this post) here.

So, some of you may of seen (via my Twitter or Google+) that I posted on Inbound about the lack of moderation and gave them some examples of spam and tips on how to combat spam (Daily sharing limit etc..) the response?


Yup, I was banned of inbound, a site I’ve been on for months and actively contributed to.

It does however get funnier, even though I was banned and my profile no longer exists. I’m still sitting pretty comfortably at #3 of the “Influential Members” list.

Not to mention the fact that my discussion caused some real debate, with the likes of Tom Roberts, Mark Traphagen and others getting involved with the conversation.

Martin Harris also made a meme that had me rofl’ing on the train on the way home, some people did however think I was having a seizure.

So, that’s how I got banned.

I did Tweet Rand Fishkin, Ed Fry and the main Inbound account – Still no reply.
