Sounds like someone got annoyed by fleet ads in general and likely didn't target you specifically or exclusively.
You just did your ad at the wrong time and got caught in the crossfire.

1 message...but how many times spammed in zonechat?

you should have taken a screenshot of your chat...if it really was not offensive, spamming, etc...you would have your proof right there.

also the exact wording of your msg could be relevant...

There ARE finally doing something about it: they're silencing fleet ads! I applaud that.

People are starting to massively report fleet ads, because it's spam. This is an excellent decision from the community!

I was wondering why it was so quiet on DS9 chat. Minus the gorn jokes. And the political discussions. And the religious discussions. And the 1 AM world news. And the bacon madness.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.

Try posting your ad in a different location next time. Or changing your content. Or not posting it at all. Getting silenced for advertising comes with the territory really.

At least you should be happy to know someone read your recruitment message.

honestly, half the stuff i see in chat is far worse than a fleet add. i think its more of a how dare he interrupt my spam with his own spam mentality.

fleet adds are not spam if they are not "spammed" if fleet a posts an add say once an hour, that is not spam. however, when fleet b posts every 30 seconds, that is spam.

just because someone doesnt like something doesnt mean its spam or reportable.

what next, someone who doesnt like stf's is gonna target people for trying to get a team together...

this is why i am in a fleet, i dont have to worry about all the little hooligans in zone chat..(and also why i have a recruiter lol..)

Unsolicited bulk messages are spam -- yes, indeed, with the emphasis on bulk.

Apparently a moderator thought he was spamming:
