First of all, you say that the posts in question are on two completely different forums - that is exactly what crossposting is - posting the exact same thing in more than one forum. The reason this is discouraged is that it is a pain in the ass to answer someones questions, only to find that it has already been answered in another forum. Or in this case, advertising a site or station - posting this kinda stuff in more than one forum fills them up very quickly with a lot of useless crap.

Therefore Seer quite rightly locked one of the threads - posting more than once isn't going to benefit anyone. Your advertisement is still there - the only difference now is that no-one can ad to the thread. He was also quite polite when locking your thread, so I really don't see what the issue is.

And as for the 4am thing - France, where Seer is from is 6 hours ahead, so in reality he locked your thread at 10am local time.
