    So I got banned on PTP for invite trading and the mod passed my info to the BTN mod and got banned there too. These were like 10 year old accounts and they banned them without batting an eyelid. I guess tracker staff dont believe in second chances or giving a guy the benefit of the doubt for being a member for a freaking decade. I went to the PTP IRC and apologized but he wasn't in a listening mood and he banned me from PTP and also from their IRC channel. As if that wasn't enough, he passed my info to BTN and KG and those guys banned me too.

    I don't know if the PTP mods visit this forum but I was wondering if there's a reasonable mod there who will give me a second chance? Since this is the biggest forum about Bittorrrent outside of trackers I thought I'd try.

    Don't do the crime if you can't do the time

    Pleasantries aside, I commend the fact you didn't conveniently omit the true reason for your ban, but this is the torrent world. The odds of staff giving you a "second chance" are approximately 0%, and as far as they're concerned, why would they? You broke one of their golden rules and that's it.

    Personally, I think revoking your invite privileges on the specific tracker you traded invites for would have been more appropriate. Of course, I have no idea of what it's like to run something with X users during my free time as an unpaid volunteer who is also always right, so I'm wrong and should shut the fuck up.

    I'd never trade PTP or BTN - trade IPtorrents if you are going to trade.

    Who would trade their way to IPT when you can get an official invite for just $19.95?

    From my experience PTP doesn't normally hand down punishments from actions on other...lower tier sites. But PTP-BTN are like brother and sister sites.

    You had PTP, I can't imagine what the other person had for you to trade. The punishment wouldn't have been so harsh if you just gave it away to some random - instead of trading.

    PTP has been in the mainstream news before, so they understandably have to be cautious.

    You had a 10 year old account, you was around when this happened....

    You're trying to rationalize your crime.

    Anyways what torrent site was worth PTP? You're at the top and can get into any other torrent site in their invite forum.
