Since I am running a WSO on there I was checking my messages today and noticed I got a PM from the admin – Allen Says.
The title was kind of scary because it said, “Banned – URGENT”
At first I was like WTF?! I have never violated any rules over there. Who would file a complaint against me?
Anyway, I replied of course and asked what was going on? Allen replied and told me that someone filed a DMCA complaint against the Warrior Forum, and forwarded me the message.
Well, turns out it was my massage that I sent to a hosting company against another site that happens to host the WarriorForum as well.
I guess the wording was a little confusing so they thought that the complaint was against the WF.
So finally I got it figured out and sent them another message saying that WF was just where I was selling my latest product and the other site I mentioned was in violation.
Long story short I was not banned and it all worked out.
So lesson to be learned? Make sure to word your DMCA complaints right or you risk running into trouble. I outsourced the sending and I guess the person that was sending them out for me must have made a mistake or something.
I was very confused for a while to be honest. I didn’t know what in the hell was happening and what Allen was actually talking about. In his first message he said that their IP was about to get banned, so I thought maybe someone was spamming my affiliate links somewhere. Then after he forwarded me the actual DMCA complaint I got even more confused because it was mine against another site.
So I was about to get banned because of my own complaint lol
Good thing I actually checked my inbox and saw it just in time because he was about to delete my account and remove all my posts to save the forum.
I am going to personally check each DMCA complaint I send out from now on.
