Help me out guys, I just wanna know if Im out of line, or if Ive been totally crapped on for no good reason. OK, I am a big fan of David Copperfield, & I am trying to collect every tv show appearance he has ever done aside from his TV specials, of which I have all of them. As of today when I am writing this, the only commercially available official release of any Copperfield tv special footage is his "Illusion" DVD. So, obviously, anything else that I have obtained on video is from recordings off of tv. Now, if there was an official DVD release of everything Copperfield has ever done that you could buy officially at a store or on-line, Id buy it & this wouldnt be a problem. Sadly, this isnt the case, as the ONLY way to come across these vids is again, through someone who has personally recorded it off of tv. So I post on The Maic Cafe listing all the video I do have, & a list of what Im looking for, & if there was anyone out there who wanted to trade me, or sell me the videos I was after if they had it. So I get a message from Magic Cafe saying "You posted in the wrong area, as there is a place in the forum for trading, but you have to have 50+ posted messages to access it, & everyone here thinks your videos are not originals & are bootlegs & we dont tolerate bootlegging." So I wrote back to the administrator who sent me that messaage saying- "In my post, I never once said that my vids were originals & not bootlegs. Sorry I didnt know the rules about trading. Whats the big deal with wanting to trade videos that arent otherwise commercially available, that the ONLY way to get them is through someone who recorded them off the TV? & even if I get acccess to the trading forum, & repsted my message, would it just get removed anyways since I am trading "bootleg videos?" My response back....PERMANENTLY BANNED!!! I was like ***!?! R U KIDDING ME? No response back? Not a no, "you cant re-post your message", or "You cant trade those videos here/ This will be a warning" etc. No, NOTHING!! Just POOF! Account BANNED!!!! I just dont get it. To me, bootlegging would be buying a legal copy of a movie DVD, & burning an ILLEGAL copy of it, than trying to sell/trade it for something/ put it o the internet as a torrent. So what are you supposed to do in my case where the vids Im looking for YOU CANT BUY ANYWHERE???? Anway, I dont think I would be as pissed if I at least got an answer to my question back to them with them saying at least WHY I am being banned & some what of a reason/justification for them banning me, but no, nothing. & Ive never gotten in trouble with them for anything else before either. & heres the extra kicker- whenever I try to even go to the site, I get an error message saying Im banned, if there are any questions, to contact the website administrator. So If I cant even go to the site, HOW IN THE HECK CAN I CONTACT THE WEBSITE ADMINISTRATOR????????? Not that it matters, cause even if they un-banned me, the damage is done & want NOTHING to do with them ever again, as I feel the way they treated me & handled this matter was TOTALLY unethical & un-called for. All they had to say was- "Were sorry, but since your vids are bootlegs, & you try posting that message again, you will be banned" Than I wouldve listened, & it wouldnt be a problem, no big deal. But they just treat me like I was some troller posting tons of hate messages & harrasing people & deliberately causing trouble. So from this day on, if anyone ever asks me about the Cafe I will say nothing but negative things about them, just not on the internet though, cause that would be trolling, & I dont do that.
