Hi all,

Recently I encountered that I can’t post anymore to NewsGroup, getting this error message

and on OK

It doesn’t ask me for a user/password etc. Anyone knows how to fix?

I am using Thunderbird, news.softvelocity.com NNTP server. Anyway, I can read messages…

PS. And happened on two different PCs (work and home).

Hi,

It happened a few weeks ago to me as well.
I contacted Support and they fixed it after a few days.

Yesterday I got the same error and I was blocked again.
I Contact SV and got this reply:
I have sent your issue to my boss.
Someone blocked you and I am not sure why.
Maybe someone did not like your post.
I am still blocked.

It seems the SENSOR POLICE is busy again.

Maybe you also posted something someone did not like. :slight_smile:

Johan,

I’d like to welcome you (and any others) to the SV Banned Club.
Ask about an unpopular issue and get free membership.

Cheers,
Douglas

Hi Douglas,

:slight_smile:

Seems I have earned my free membership to the SV Banned Club.
Must have posted something they did not like.

Clarion Hub has long been a welcome and much improved replacement. I’ve never felt a need to go back.


#6

I was used legal name/password obtained from Lindersoft as a SB customer. A have no idea what SV had in mind or this was as usual some technical issue…


#7

I am still a member of the SV Banned Club. :slight_smile:

SV still has not unblocked my NG access and also have not provided me with information on who blocked me and why I was blocked.

You hold your head high. No reason to grovel for reinstatement.
Your best colleagues & collaborators are right here.

Hi guys,

I wanted to reply to a message by Dirk and send him the link to a template that might help him.
However I am still BLOCKED BY SV from posting any messages to the NG.

If you don’t mind can you post this link for Dirk:
NG: comp.lang.clarion
Subject: Resize appframe, resize open mdi browse

Please let him know that this might help him: https://github.com/bostjanlaba/NeoTools
and: https://github.com/mikeduglas/Smart-Zoom

Johan,

Still no word about the crime for which you have been convicted?


#11

Hi Douglas,

Nope not a word yet.
Maybe I will never know and never hear why and what and by who.

I asked SV on 12 Dec 2018:
I can’t remember that I posted anything wrong.
I would like to know who blocked me and why I was blocked.

I got an reply on 12 Dec 2018 from SV:
Any of the developers could have done that, I am not sure which one did.

Regards

Johan de Klerk


#12

Never any explanation or followup here either.


#13

Nope, it seems SV will never respond.
Seem we will have to get used to it.


#14

When no one is left, who turns out the lights?


#15

:smile:
You are 100% on the dot with your question/statement.
If SV will ever realize it is another good question. :wink:
