> Apr 13 12:35:45 <Joanna>        I advised you to go to forums where you could get some help. Did you ask your question in forums yet?                                                                                                                                                                                        
> Apr 13 12:37:36 <Joanna>        Your question in fpc was already answered. Please Ask your next question in forums and provide a link

No, I prefer mailinglist and IRC, not forums.

Now I'm also banned from #lazarus, the reason is "harrassment by pm".

I ask the #fpc Libera.Chat IRC administrators (if they are listening 
here) to revoke channel operator status for user "Joanna".
