    It's a Yahoo group. I just tried to sign in and got a message saying I'd been "banned by the moderator". I have no idea why, and there doesn't seem to be a provision for asking. I can't imagine that anything I've posted was improper or controversial.

    I think that that is the organization that I tried to join. There was a form to fill out and they asked why you wanted to join. I never got a response... This was a few weeks ago. I thought that I would join the group and then get my breeding stock when I move.

    I belong to it and haven't had any issues with it. Just saw a post by you (Oblio 13) in fact.

    I'm not sure how to contact the owner/moderator. Maybe if you applied to join again and asked what the issue was they would tell you.

    I did. It says "You have been blocked from joining this group." I can't think of a single thing I've ever posted that was negative or offensive. My last post was along the lines of "I just had a great hatch, 11 of 14, good luck with yours." It's not a great loss, I hardly ever post there, but I'm very curious about this.

    I post there as well and am thinking it is a glitch. I think I may have even seen someone else ask about the same thing. You can contact the moderator here: [email protected]

    Thanks, I just sent an email.

    I heard from someone else who was banned as well. She said "Ron" is the owner and he's been doing that quite a lot, with no explanations.

    Thanks.
