Recover from false "SPAMMER" ban?

On June 9 I reported two spam accounts. Moments later PhotoJoe sprang into action, banning MY ACCOUNT as a spammer. He immediately realized his mistake and rescinded my ban, but it appears that all user content gets stripped from the forum when you ban an account (and yes, I can understand why it works that way). Can it be recovered? Look, it's not like I did anything important on here, I get that. But I like to think my contributions to the Tour De France Trainer thread and the Saved From The Dump thread were worthwhile, and I would like them recovered if possible.

I would have asked PhotoJoe directly, by replying to the PM he sent me to apologize, but the "50 post minimum" rule won't allow it. Maybe that rule should be that until the 50 post minimum, one cannot INITIATE a private message, but can reply? Or, anybody can reply to admins?

I will relay this to a mod and if you AREN'T a double-naught hopefully MI-5 will restore your clearance.

I hope that helps...I have over 12,000 posts on one site and that would be a mess. I'm sorry about the mess you have as well and hope you are back 'in gear' very soon.
