    Me and Matrix123 had suspicions that RavioliDance was potentially a PBU back under another name... and today that username shows up as banned, so someone must have done some checks and found out. As I didn't see RavioliDance post anything out of the ordinary...

    A PBU is a Previously Banned User. Basically, if you get banned, don't rejoin under another name, as you'll get spotted, and banned again.

    It was basically the posting style; there's a certain user on here that we both know the posting style to and there are giveaway signs that this user is back under another account. Any mention of James_W (who is a user on another forum) is a total giveaway, as are "accidentally" going over the 10 post limit by 1 or 2 posts just to make the number look more even. There's other giveaway signs too but I won't go into them.

    04MR17 can we have a quick edit on the previous post please? Thanks

    Oh ok I get it now. Do you think this user will rejoin again as a different username? There's one username here that looks suspicious "goldmedalwinner" join date was this month, as soon after RavioliDance was banned. :holmes:
