This program isn't for filesharing, so you were mislead...
Noone here will know why you were banned, only the person who banned you will know that (and the odds of him/her being here are not very high), so you would be better off asking them, or getting someone else to.

You dont say if you were banned from the server/network or banned from a channel. You can be banned from a channel for any reason, up to and including none at all. If you were banned from the server, there was a reason. Bans can be permanent or of any duration, from minutes to whenever. You may be able to find who to talk to about your specific problem on EFnet's forum

You can see general rules when you join a server by reading their MOTD (Message of The Day), which you see when you join or by typing /MOTD There are some rules which are pretty much a given, like no flooding, no mass advertising, etc. Check out this site for some good general info for new users who want to use mIRC for its intended purpose, chatting.

Its true, all over direct connect people are saying that mIRC is good for file sharing. Bunch a retards! I keep correcting them, and yet they keep coming. Y would u ask for a fs programme when your on one anyway!
