It would have been removed by a mod but the reason I am unsure of.

Use the 'contact us' at the bottom of the page.

When searching for it use +99euro +iphone. Put a '+'infront of it.

Original Poster

so searching with a '+' includes member spammed posts then? and how is a post voted as spam then? the warning triangle? sorry for being a novice! gijimmy

Thats unnecessarily offensive, the mods here do a very good job despite a barrage of rude, unjustified comments like that :x

you should have received a pm, depending on how busy the mods are i suppose

a spammed post is auto removed, so no it wont bring them up cause they no longer on the boards, to spam a post you hit spam in the first post, after a few hits it gets auto removed

have now read the posting advice. i understand the + and - signs when searching. but am still confused as to why the post was removed from the 'new' post list and RSS feed. thanks for all your help so far. GIJimmy

There is an icon like a bin and next to it it says spam. This is located underneath your writing. If you click it it will be spammed and yes I found it after it was pointed out it was not removed.

The warning triangle is used to report a post like if it has indecent material and that kind of stuff.

Ok, your post was removed due to the site you included in your OP

EDIT: Because there is already a dedicated thread

I pulled it back up for a sec so that I could check why it had been deleted.
It's gone again now

Thats what I thought also! Admin obviously thought it was OK - he posted in that thread and was looking to get one if my memory serves me correctly! Why not leave the post with the link removed and reference to the original HUKD thread?

exactly! i dont see how it can be inappropriate now having been allowed only a few weeks ago. i was simply asking if anyone had managed to get one! i dont know why people would spam it anyway? GIJimmy

It's not the site you included, it's the fact that the link is already on Hotukdeals.
You can repost in the original thread if you like - hotukdeals.com/ite…e=3

It was Admin who spammed GIJimmy's thread.

LOL!!!

So the link is ok to still be shown in the deal section where admin participated in the thread - but not in the misc section where the guy is seeking feedback?

Seems a bit daft! Cant follow the logic! Numerous posts in this section refer back to deals and company info!

OMG whatever next, a spammed post in misc, wow thats bad

He he! Now now.

To be fair, I thought the OP was in the deal section! But the notion is quite amusing all the same!
