PT is disabling people for inactivity bigtime nowadays. Logging in (activity-wise) is not enough (unlike on other more established trackers) - You have to download stuff from the tracker. New rules, they say.
Do not anticipate too much from IRC-help though...Staff is rigid, unwilling to help and eventually they seem to be getting rid of foreign users. Being reasonable and organized won't help a bit - they do not accept any arguments. I was literally refused any help by the lowlife scrub I talked to on IRC. Polish has been more broadminded way back - maybe this new turned is due to the recession. Well, there was the language-barrier , douche had a poor English... Nice job, PT - once a star, now a pathetic joke.
Shame on You, PT.
