Found 22nd May 2008
Hi, I just posted a deal about cheap/free routers. Probably in the wrong section (should've been in deals not freebies I now realise) but why has it been spammed and expired?

It was this one:

hotukdeals.com/for…ost

Thanks,

AV

Question answered via PM, though still perplexed.

We dont allow sites / deals associated with ebay. The site you've posted is owned by a ebay powerseller

Yeah just been told. Didn't know that and it seems to be a site on its own merit, but fair enough then.

Thanks for pointing sassie. Looks like the payperdrop thread was allowed by mistake

Main reason for enforcing this rule is to make sure that the ebay merchants don’t self promote their deals here.

Great !!!!!! I have just ordered one of the routers off there due to it being on here, if I had known I would not have done that. I have paid via paypal any options of cancelling????:x

why do you want to cancel?:?

Was this along the lines of voadphone/creative/etc ebay store? I can't see the harm is simply naming the store in misc. Spill.

So if any company sells on ebay they aren't allowed to be mentioned on here?

If so, how come Orange can be mentioned?

If you are into VOIP the Thompson router is pretty good for £9 - it allows you to connect two regular phones to it, and gives you normal line (you can set up prefixes for local numbers to add the dialling code automatically). I'd get one but I wouldn't use it much.

Thanks to the OP, I got 2 routers for £15 delivered. I thought it was a good deal.
Still can't see what the problem is? Its a good deal and no mention of Ebay on the site whatsoever. Does somebody have a previous bad experience with this seller/ Site?

I posted in the thread that it wouldn't be allowed as it was an ebay seller, they are more known for their ebaying than their generally retailing whereas dell/orange etc are well known for their general retailing and not their ebaying.
