My apologies for making this post however it seems that I have no alternative.
I own http://www.shopneo.co.ukhttp://www.shopneo.co.uk
and we were fortunate to have had one of our deals posted to this site last year. However it was deleted that same day with the claim that Neo staff was spamming this forum. First of all that's a complete lie and I asked for evidence of this claim and none was given
I quickly forgot about this as we have many other forums that post our deals from time to time with great success. However we announced a new deal on DVD-R yesterday and it was picked up by many sites including HotUKDeals. Great we thought - I was given the link and our original offer that was deleted previousley was there as well as the new offer. Many orders and questions came in from HUKD members and everyone has been given great service.
However I received an email from the poster of one of the deals saying he had received a PM from admin:
I don't really care if you claim not to be connected with them. We have been spammed repeatedly by them in the past and at this point they are not allowed on the boards due to this. Whether you are a associated with them or just a member the point is we don't allow their posts. If a merchant cannot act ethically on our boards it is not a merchant we want our members referred to period.
I feel the need to state categorically that we (or anyone else for that matter) have NEVER spammed these forums with ANYTHING! We have only ever had 2 deals posted here in our entire history and they have both been removed with false claims regarding our ethics.
Can I get an explanation and/or evidence as to why we are being singled out? Isn't it the job of this site to show offers that benefit its members and not any hidden agenda or affiliation ?
I would appreciate an honest reponse. The only people missing out here are your members - they deserve the opportunity plus we deserve to have a crack at free trade.
