I didn't remove it myself but I guess a mod made the call. There are parody deals that remain sometimes but it tends to get out of control pretty quickly and then we get the reverse whinging happening here. So mods generally tend to play it by ear.

I didn't see the post, but I bet it wasn't funny in the slightest, had been done to death already and was generally a waste of time and effort.

Also you can't use Bah Humbug in frickin November.

I don't want to be overly harsh and have my post deleted, but you really should consider growing up.

I've had a message off a Mod who spammed it, and he suggested I appeal using the 'Contact' link, so that's just what I have done.

I really hope Admin. can over-see this one and put it back - it will benefit and make happy SOOO many children......

If it wasn't a deal surely it was a legitmate misc thread unless it broke the rules in some way.

imho "joke deals" shouldnt be allowed,no matter how funny they are-deals is for deals-end of story-jokes are for misc. Far too many people posting "I know this isnt really a deal,but I will post it in deals anyway" makes a mockery of the purpose of the site.

If one parody deal is allowed then they all have to be and then it descends into farce. If it isnt a deal,dont post it in deals.

It's in the freebie section already....your just after the heat



It was removed for being a duplicate then Haylhoo.

Apparently it was already in Freebies - but as I (and probably many others) wouldn't have seen it there, I honestly thought HUKD Admin could over-look it just this once so that many more people could get the benefit.

If it was something really silly or of not much use to many people then i'd say ok and leave it (probably wouldn't have posted it in the first place - I hate wasting my time) but I was trying to bring some cheer to people for Xmas.

What the hell would I want that for? Do I get paid for it or something? YOU may only post her for that reason, I post here to try and help others out......

It isn't a 'joke' though, it's a really lovely Xmas message from Santa for kiddies, and it's Free!

I agree with Barky joke deals shouldn't be classed as deals unless they actually have some sort of legitimate benefit.

I would just check in future before wasting your time, search via google rather then via the search engine.

Never mind I hope that the people who don't look at the Freebies section see it some other way.....

The person who correctly posted it in freebies did so for the same reason....and hasn't started to insult people

Who's insulting people?
It was YOU who accused ME of only posting for the heat oO
I think i'll end my conversations with you there, you obviously only post to get a reaction.

You people are totally missing my point - perhaps you should try reading what i've said BEFORE commenting!

Absolutely spot on.

and op... I know exactly what I'm talking about - happens all the time, most people don't cry as much though.

You can't duplicate every post in every forum. You have to rely on someones common sense to look in the right place..............if they are lacking in it then that is their problem.

But surely you see that this is a subset of the membership of HUKD... and the membership want you to stick by the rules, so your opinion is kinda immaterial?

WTF is UKHD?



slamdunkin is evidently dyslexic.

@ OP your thread had already been posted in the correct section, stop moaning duplicate threads are removed majority of the time probably from the members of the site (by using the spam button) rather than the mods.
