Trolls is what keeps me from actively posting... that and if I find something, someone usually beats me to it. Like the adidas sale today... Someone else posted it before I could by 2 minutes. I admit, I could have ordered my UB after posting the deal on RFD, but I'm greedy like that.

A true RFD will always buy first, share second.

10% off is cold, 50% off is warm, 75% off is hot, but FREE IS RFD!

I've basically stopped posting new deals after being accused multiple times of being a shrill.
There are so many deals on Amazon I believe RFDers will like but I'm not going to put my account at risk for no benefit.

Examples are:

Naipo Foot Massager $30
https://www.amazon.ca/Naipo-Massager-El ... B07F9LCPHP

Echo Dot (3rd gen) $35

The problem stems from Amazon 3rd party sellers continuously contacting members here to share their deals in exchange for product or money. It's the reason why new rules had to be put in regarding the sharing of these deals, and the reason why many of these sellers are blacklisted.

Unless you are actually receiving compensation for sharing deals, there's no risk to your account.

The trouble is if a moderator decided to ban my account, how do I appeal and provide proof of receiving no compensation?

We usually only ban new accounts over this. Any established member would be warned at least a few times before a permanent suspension of their account would occur.
