Where are the deal threads going ??

Earlier today there was a deal thread for a pack of movietickets.com GCs from Boxed. The thread is now gone. A couple weeks ago there was a very popular PSA thread regarding eBay's temporary return of using GCs for GCs. That thread is also gone. I can understand a thread being deleted because it somehow violates the rules, but these threads were standard deal threads. They were completely innocuous and seem to have been wiped out for no reason. So what's going on with these?

The movies.com thread was referral based, and was removed since we do not allow referrals. Regarding the PSA thread, did you check Deal Talk?

I found this one in DT after searching for PSA.

I see. They could have just removed the referral code, but gotcha.

alternatively, you may have been thinking about this thread: https://slickdeals.net/f/9093103-psa-13th-sept-13th-oct-3rd-party-gift-cards-can-be-purchased-again-with-ebay-gift-cards
Neither. It's definitely gone as I posted in the thread and cannot see my post in my post history. It has also since been re-posted as you said, so I was even more confused as to why the original post had been removed.

it appears it was first mentioned on the afternoon of the 9th in the latter part of this thread: https://slickdeals.net/f/9038599-psa-major-new-restrictions-on-ebay-gift-card-usage-no-longer-accepted-for-3rd-party-gift-cards?p=89122403#post89122403

and then posted as a standalone thread later that day, as linked previously: https://slickdeals.net/f/9093103-psa-13th-sept-13th-oct-3rd-party-gift-cards-can-be-purchased-again-with-ebay-gift-cards
as you can see, several other threads on the subject were posted later and merged into the original.

if not the one mentioned by finzz2dlft perhaps you're thinking of your post here from another ebay thread around that time? Dontknow https://slickdeals.net/f/9098699-100-exxon-mobil-gas-gift-card-for-only-92-free-mail-delivery-ebay?p=89286607#post89286607
