So I was banned from a particular website, this is a large website, but I was banned unfairly. I tried creating a new account to start off fresh again but it appears that this site has permanently banned from even doing that.  I've been told that it could be because of my IP address, I changed my IP but nothing different happened.


This site says it bans people by using cookies to track if it's the same user so when I deleted and disabled cookies including my flash cookies, it said it won't allow spammers to register on their site. 


I had personal data on that site as well.  I am just confused as to why changing my VPN and deleting flash cookies can keep me banned?

The security measures used by another website are a matter for them, and we don't comment on that, or discuss topics that could enable breaching such security measures, as per the forum rules:
