Wasting 10-15 minutes posting a deal then it shows as from URL blocked

It's awesome that it doesn't tell me before hand that the deal I'm posted is blocked for whatever reason until after I'm done and push submit. What kind of crap is that. It was for M Pow headphone if that makes any difference. I'm guessing the seller on Amazon is blocked or something? Since you don't share your block list with us. How are we supposed to know before hand, so we don't waste time trying to post?

Hi!

I'm sorry that you are feeling frustrated.

In the case of an Amazon seller, here is a link to our guidelines. You can check to see if the seller fufills those requirements before you attempt to post. This thread explains how to find the ratings.

Hi,
Sorry for the frustration in posting the deal.

Our list of banned merchants is quite large. We try to give them chances to not break our rules about shilling but after a few chances we tend to go with a block.

The list is quite extensive and would be very hard to keep up with in a thread/wiki etc.

I agree that it would help to have it show as blocked as you are trying to make the post and I do believe that is on the list for features to be worked on but I don't have an ETA, sorry.
