We can't all know everything. LOL Sometimes we need to converse with others to be sure of things. My guess would be a Mod was unsure but to err on the side of caution they told you they were banned. I remember the question being asked in the Mod section awhile back. It was decided that they are not banned but the associate that advertised for them was banned. Sorry if this caused any confusion. We have to make decisions on the fly sometimes.
