Just so it's clear this my decision and LL had nothing to do with it. As most know posts are rarely locked or removed from here. Briefly the OP and another member were posting from the same IP and this has been confirmed by one of the members that was banned, I will note they gave an explanation. That's all you really need to know.
If there is one thing I will not tolerate is deceptive posting from two accounts, it's happened before and I'm sure it will happen again. While this incident was unrelated to any companies as long as I'm on the topic I've had two companies do this in the past and I have quietly banned them. In the future I'll be sure to let everyone know any company that gets caught doing it.
I'm going to close this topic and remove the other comments since they are speculative.
