the problem with moderation status, is none of the posts were getting approved, none of my posts were approved until this topic came about, I also could not PM anyone, not even "VCA forum Staff" so your wrong. it's for all intensive purposes a ban. moderated status is pretty much crap. you either suspend, or you ban. period. removing ones ability to even PM is insane. I was on that moderated status since I posted the VCA letter of doom, which was posted on another web forum all together.
