I removed you from the room after you took issue with me in PM, but this is beside the point. 

When you go into a channel, to be told that what you want isn't going to happen because the law prevents you from obtaining that information, only to then tell everyone that "You have a friend who will give it to you anyway", why did you ask for help?

Seems a little circuitous.

Maybe you should tell the full story not just your half no one would kick you out for no reason

Were you requesting someone to break the Law?

First of all Welcome to Geekzone

The chances are you broke a rule in the IRC chatroom hence why the staff member kicked you.

@freitasm Selects staff members and I assume gave him admin rights on the irc channel.

Edit: I think you should post the full story before saying you were banned for no reason.

yUmMyBlOnDiE welcome to Geekzone.

Boby55, I actually don't have that power in the chatroom. It was created by cokemaster and as such I try not to interfere on that - I do have operator access there but I don't assign the operators. However, you are right - operators there are trusted people.

I am not aware of the whole story, but munchkin is right in that we do not distribute illegal and generally frown upon people who are disrespectful in the channel.
