I've now had 2 HOT deals spammed in last week (one minutes ago) and wondered why they havn't been unspammed.
I check through deals and look closer at ones which interest me. But it seems others look through deals and then moan at the ones which don't interest them!
If I purchase something online and discover it to be the best price available I then post it on here. These last 2 book deals may not be every one's cup of tea but I'm sure some have appreciated them. The threads might get heated but surely those who post dodgy posts should get punished not the "deal" itself?
FREEDOM OF DEALS seems to of come a cropper...

..or you could just not worry about it

contact the mods or post in feedback and they will check the posts and bring them back if spammed in error

Maybe they were just duplicates?

Was one of your deals the atheist's bible http://www.amazon.co.uk/Atheists-Bible-Illustrious-Collection-Irreverent/dp/0715637258/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1234888172&sr=8-1

It was certainly the cheapest deal going on that book, so I gave it heat :)

Yes, I think it's a bit of a hot potato because of it's religious or lack of religious input which seems to really excite people...

I think people thought I was preaching Atheism instead of just showing a deal.

Hi peachgod, I've checked & both of your deals were member spammed rather than removed by a MOD. If one of your deals does go missing & you don't receive a PM explaining why, there is a thread in Feedback where you can post or you can contact HUKD via the report button http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/images/custom_buttons/report.gif beside your avatar or through the link at the bottom of the main pages so that we can investigate for you.

Both unspammed now. Please note that as they are both Deal posts all remarks made in the thread should relate to the actual deal & any other more general discussions should continue in the MISC forum as per Forum rules, thanks :thumbsup:

Ask Mods to check if it's the same people spamming your deals/threads each time, if they're doing it just because they don't like what you're posting then the spammers should be given an infraction. That sort of behaviour has been punished that way in the past as far as I'm aware.

Mind you, as mentioned earlier the reason might just be that they were in the wrong section, here's hoping!
