If that's the case, then that's probably the reason as it was an ebay listing from China. I included a caveat emptor, but for under £3.50 and with a good feedback ratio, I thought it was good enough to go for myself (and have). Once again though, none of this is in the help.

Nothing there about restricting overseas retailers, and the original deal and alternatives in that thread are all from overseas retailers, so how's a person to know this stuff? Also even if I was just a lurker, I was unaware until now that not all sources of a product were allowed, and you may have to go searching for a better deal anyway. I expect that most casual users like me think that others will have looked on ebay for a better price if available.

Edit: Oh, no comment moderation there. What IS the criteria?

A post without a URL perhaps.

I'll get back to you on your other points shortly though.

Ah, I guess that makes sense. I had thought previously that might be the case, but then I dismissed it because one of my posts which went into moderation didn't contain a link. However thinking back now I remember that I quoted someone else's post which DID contain a URL.

You'll soon learn a lot of HUKD's policies and rules are undocumented and … You'll soon learn a lot of HUKD's policies and rules are undocumented and made up on the spot or at a whim.



Like being facetious may get you an infraction!
