I'm a long-time Drupal user, and have been getting my feet wet with WordPress to help out a community group I volunteer with. So far, its pretty enjoyable, but I ran into a wall on a plugin I was writing, so I figured I'd check out the IRC to see if I was doing something dumb.
Anyway, I joined the IRC channel #wordpress and was immediately banned. I was identified with the nickserv as Superlou. I'm not too sure how to continue with figuring out what happened, and would appreciate some pointers.
Let me know if there is additional information I can provide.
