Maybe just because of reserved squads. Most server have 98/100 because 2 slots are for clan-members. Wait until they have 97 players on them and join, or just choose a medium-filled server right away

When they have reserved slots on and all the non reserved are taken you get that message. If you highlight a server the amount of reserved slots should be displayed between ( ) .

If a server has reserve spots, the game will simply tell you that the server is full. If it says that you've been banned by an admin, it sounds like you aren't playing on a legit key, or are playing on a key that has been previously banned the admins on that server.

The servers are no longer ran by gamespy, therefore whether i have a legit key or not is void, the current servers do not check for my cd key so please stop saying this is the issue, unless i am missing something.

This may just be the issue, so if a cd key has been banned in the past using that cd will mean you are banned, but why would this matter when the servers have nothing to do with the company's anymore ?

Because server admins don't want griefers/ hackers on their servers

No, this safety mechanism has nothing to do with the removal of gamespy, you are one of many that got caught by it ^^

Why would a mod care as long as it is getting players when the people who created the game have abandoned it entirely, the people who keep this game running are doing so at their own cost, not ea or any other company so why would they still want to enforce stupid copyright rules.

The game is sorely lacking in players at the moment, maybe a good way to offset this would be to make the game truly free since the only company's who make money from it have stopped doing anything for it and abandoned the community, it does not make sense to me why the project reality mod would enforce a huge company like ea's copyright laws, bewildered.
