First, I was suspended for a year from the X site. And I have appealed it.
Then, (several days later) I was having a discussion with a moderator in the French chat, which I thought was in depth and going along fine in terms of questions I have, and boom, someone, a mod, suspended me without warning just as we were talking! [re editing: there was nothing untoward in my sentence. The whole point of this post is explained here. Please do not edit it. I had no way of knowing who suspended me. I did not know it was possible for another mod to suspend me while I was talking to a different mod.]
Now, I tried to access the chat here on ELU, and it says I cannot as I have been suspended from chat. Is this a bug or what?
(By the way, please don't use jargon-y language here. I won't understand it. Thanks.)
For the information of any French forum users: This question is about being suspended from chatting while speaking to a moderator on the French site. This could have happened anywhere as I am told this is a site-wide suspension. I was merely explaining what happened.
I repeat: Since chat suspensions are site-wide, there is no way to know who initiated the suspension or where, ergo, one can ask about this anywhere. And FLE participants should stop maligning me for asking a simple question. I am not blaming the mod with whom I was having the discussion when another mod did this. It was just shocking to me that another mod would do that when a person (me) was talking to a mod. And no one has yet addressed this issue specifically.
Please note once again: This is not about the site where this happened. This is a general question so I would appreciate it if those who keep ascribing intentions to me would just stop it.
