I'm not allowed to post any comments of TA website

Hi guys, as mentioned above, I am no longer allowed to post comments on any TA article. I hope the site admin, or anyone for that matter, may pinpoint where I went wrong along the way. Yes, some comments may have been critical of say, the review or game itself, but I do not think I crossed the imaginary line at any point.

The message that appears: The site has blocked you from posting new comments.

My Disqus username is defred34. I think I've posted close to 50 comments on the site.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Dude, I'm talking about the main site (i.e. TA website) not the forums. I'm good here at the forums.

Keep calling Eli mentally sick and your situation in the forums might change as well, dude.

If you posted like one of these quotes above on tA's front page, it would be no wonder that you're banned there because of trolling or insulting behaviour. It's not like "free speech!", it's more like "stick to the rules".

If you need to know the reason for the front page ban, PM a mod. He might possibly tell you why.

I doubt I have called him that before. Anyway, I hope a mod sees this and can respond. Bummer I can't weigh in my ultimately heavy 2 cents on TA's homepage.

You mean commenting? Are you using a computer or the TA app? On the app, it's sort of hit and miss with me. If I don't hold tap the button in the uper left corner, the comment doesn't get posted; othertimes ot just doesn't for no apparent reason. Maybe it has to do with needing a disqus account from a computer, but not from the app.

Oh my. Thats terrible news. Then who controls the front page comments? Can you send my humble plea to the higher-ups?

Well, I'm a little ashamed about this, but I've never downloaded the TA app on my iPad!! I only comment on the forums through the mobile web or just my laptop. So yeah, my account is actually really banned...bummer.
