I did exactly what I was supposed to for my class and they banned my account and never said why, other than that I was not contributing in the best intent.
Now I got an F on my final grade and I have to make up 3 lost credits because they banned my account before my instructor could grade the assignment on the website.
All I did was add a link to one article and fix vandalism in another, and they banned me indefinitely for "trolling, lying about edits (I never lied about anything, I was doing my homework!), and no intention to contribute".
I emailed them for an explanation, and they have yet to reply, and this took place in April of 2007. I don't think it should take four months to reply back to me!
