    You should have simply responded with

    "Dear Dipshit,

    Shut up.

    Spark"

    I can understand why you would make that kind of statement... getting banned does have a tendency to piss one off doesn't it :D

    gwafk2 - obviously you didn't read the original post, so here, let me help you out...

    "Just a friendly reminder: If you get banned, you don't get a refund.

    Folks, when you registered for this site, you agreed to follow our Subscriber & User Agreement. Yes, you did. Seriously. You even checked a box stating you read and agreed to it.

    We have listed many of the things that will earn you warnings & infractions in the FAQ.

    There's a reason why we have a graduated system of warnings and infractions prior to bannings; it's so that you can learn from your mistakes and hopefully not repeat them.

    For those who are search or mentally impaired, here's a direct link to them:
    http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/fa...q_faq_warnings

    Being a paid subscriber does not exempt you from the Subscriber & User Agreement. Seriously, it doesn't. We even put a little part in the FAQ that tells you:

    I got banned and have a paying membership, can I get a refund?

    No. We are very lenient here, and if you somehow managed to violate our rules to the point of getting banned... Sorry, you just donated the remainder of your membership to us. Next time don't do whatever got you banned. For a more thorough explanation, please read the Terms & Conditions of this site. http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/fa...bership_banned

    So, when you don't bother to read the rules, and don't bother to read the FAQ, and don't bother to follow the instructions that Mods give you after giving warnings, then sass the mods repeatedly, your account is suspended.

    When your account is suspended, you don't get your membership fee's back.

    One of our recently banned members decided to call me up today and give me an earful about how it's unfair that he was banned for not following the rules and indignant that we hadn't refunded his money. When I told him he would not be receiving a refund, he went on a tirade about how we were "stealing" his money by banning him, and words to the effect that he'll be seeking revenge. Whatever.

    It's simple: don't be a jackass, and you won't get banned. If you get banned, sorry, your membership is forfeit. Call it a service charge for dealing with assholes.

    If you try to dispute the charge with PayPal, you are also going to have a bad time:
    https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mp...eement-full#13

    13.3 Ineligible Items. PayPal Purchase Protection only applies to PayPal payments for certain tangible, physical goods. Payments for the following are not eligible for reimbursement under PayPal Purchase Protection:

    Intangible items, including Digital Goods Access to the areas of this site that require a paid subscription is considered digital content and is ineligible for paypal buyer protection.

    Deal. With. It. "

    p.s. Trip on that, whilst having a nice day... :)
