    They probably banned your computers IP address. If that's the case, you won't ever be able to access the site from that specific computer. I do think this sounds like Crap, though.
    He can use a proxy server to overcome that problem.

    But why? As much as I like the quality of the posts in that forum, I don´t like the administration. They are a bunch of %"§&", sorry.
    It´s not worth it.
    And no, I was never banned from that site but I have some experience with their politics and behaviour.

    Moore Majik,

    I know you very well and have even emailed you to see if you have a clip online. Magic Cafe is run by Steve Brooks. If you get hold of him tell him to contact me if he still has an issue with you asking for Copperfield videos.

    Chris

    Wow, thanks Chris! I will contact Steve & see what he says. I didnt want to contact you about the matter as I know Ive bugged you enough in the past about DC videos & your a busy guy, & I apologize for that. I did e-mail you back a couple of times about that video you were looking for but you didnt respond back, so I figured you did come across it. But I still have it if you still need it. Again, thanks for helping me out, it means alot to me.

    congratulations!

    You will learn that the Green Swill Pond is one of the biggest laughing points in the really big world of Magic. . . more so if you are involved with Mentalism and/or Bizarre Magick (the two areas from which the majority of booted off bandits come. .. but then most mentalists & bizarrists aren't known for holding their tongues nor, for being a butt kiss of any sort. . . we won't even get into the Political & Religious orientation points that will get you ousted from that sight).

    Wear your banning proud. . . consider becoming part of the "How Many Times Can I Get Banned from the Cafe" club. . . there's hundreds of us and most all of us got booted for the same exact reason; we thought we lived in a FREE nation where one could simply talk like a normal person would; being allowed your opinion, beliefs, etc. without retribution. . . guess we were wrong

    I can't name names, but there are some very big players that have been banned from the Cafe so you are amongst good company. Don't take it personal and choose to move on -- YOU DON'T NEED THEM!

    I have never even bothered to sign up there because of stories like this.

    It's like fmylife.com but funnier. You should read it more often.

    Wha? The Cafe is the property of whoever pays the bills there. We do live in a free nation where you can establish your own voice on your own dime. If the owner(s) of the Cafe are paying to keep the Cafe running, then they can call the shots. Right? Wrong? I can't say. I can only say to learn the culture, rules and customs of any community online before sticking your neck out. Every site/room/forum is different, even if they cover familiar topics.

    I would also like to say that I like seeing this side of Chris Kenner. Not just the kindness he is showing to a fan, but the man who has a positive and productive answer.

    I was banned from the cafe too... But mine was for no reason (or I think it was). All I did was create a thread, and reply to people. Nothing disrespectful, nothing rude (again not that I noticed). Next time I went on the website my thread had disappeared. I tried logging on, and guess what? ACCOUNT BANNED PERMANENTLY. No warnings, nothing. I tried emailing the owner, asking if there was a mistake or something, and got no reply back. I thought it was weird, but whatever, cause I use other forums. This happened some months, almost a year ago, I don't care anymore, but still don't know why I was banned.

    And therein lies the problem with the Cafe: it's poorly run. The mods are draconian, but unreliably so. Bannings are sometimes arbitrary, the rules are enforced inconsistently, and favoritism get played. No working pro goes there unless they have a product to sell. It's a massive circle jerk of cretinous insipidity played out among a confederacy of dunces. It's a community for wannabes and nevergonnabes run by more of the same.

    I'm taking Craig's side on this one. The Magic Cafe is free to suck far away from me and anyone else with an ounce of self-respect.
