    Judging by the votes so far... looks like this may be it.
    Edit: Hm the results have changed a bit.

    There has only been 10 votes yet and we only need one honest vote against that theory and we know that it's not that... or at least not that alone.

    Edit: nevermind

    Not necessarily. If someone was flagged for a ban, and then afterwards turned off information sharing, they might absentmindedly pick that option.
    One vote against it wouldn't necessarily hold to disprove it, at least not without feedback from the voter.

    the spotpass options has two settings, both of which can be enabled or disabled. I had enabled only the send info to nintendo one. Should I vote enabled?

    edit: not banned btw.

    Alright, seems I might be banned at a later date :D

    Never got to thank you for your work, by the way, thank you very much for everything, and, in case this thing isn't reversible, you have helped me and my friends enormously during all this time. Cheers!

    So, I went to settingt o turn Spotpass off. Turns out I already had it disabled. Which is weird, because I am sure I had it on and I was getting messages from it. So, my Spotpass got disabled at some point without my say so. Weird.

    You don't need to turn it on, it's automatically turned on. You need to explicitly turn it off

    Since I have 2 3ds, and can only vote once, I'll just reply with my other 3ds status:
    Send info setting off, not banned.

    I have two 3DSs. Neither one is banned. Both were recently upgraded from A9LH to B9S and have downloaded games via FreeShop. Neither one was used to play games online for a very long time. One (New) had Spotpass settings turned off for as long as I can remember, the other (Old) had Spotpass settings turned on for as long as I've had it.

    How does one disable spotpass? I'm pretty sure I had send system data enabled but I don't know how to check. BTW I'm not banned.
