I noticed I tried to post a deal and a certain (either seller, or the name of the item itself) is banned, automatically changing to urlhasbeenblocked. any particular reason why? is there a list of banned seller/items?

Unfortunately there's no list, but this link gives some of the reasons why a website or store may be blocked:

Hi Admin,
Once a company is banned, for example due to previous incidents on slickdeals. Is there anyway to contact staff to re-review the seller to be un-banned? Thank you.​

Since there are a few reasons unrelated to bad behavior that could be causing the blockage you can write into support@slickdeals.net
For those who have been blocked due to bad behavior it's rare to convince the team the behavior will change and get unblocked because to be blocked they would have had a few chances already and not heeded the warnings.
