    they say he performed the craziest double bass drum solo of all time right before he collapsed, but really he had just stuck a mic to his chest

    I have never been banned before. Can you read the threads on the site while banned? Or can you not even do that?

    No, instead of threads you just see a message telling you you're banned. Can't check notifications or even log out, because all the features are disabled :jj: it's kinda retarded.
