Inquiry: Banned for abuse

Update: I was able to get my account reinstated again. Thanks everyone for your help!

I received an email that I was banned for abuse for my main account remarkablemark:

However, I'm unsure what I did that would have caused the ban. The last thing I was working on was a socket server.

I'm reaching out here since I sent an email to [email protected] but got an automated reply. I hope I could get some help from the repl team.

Hey @remarkable, looks like our abuse detection system erroneously detected your account. You're repls will be restored and a password reset email should be sent. Sorry about that.

Thanks so much for the quick response! I was able to reset my password and login back to my account.

Hey there, we're investigating. Typically, this is related to phishing or crypto mining attempts.

Gotcha, that makes sense. I wonder if my socket server repl was making too many requests and raising a false alarm.

Nevertheless, I appreciate the help and explanation!
