Nice been running beta 3 since yesterday so I guess I have the faster charging.

fyi, jb was demonstrated on 11.1.1

While that's not a public release, 11.2 may have closed some holes

Which is the best adblocker for iOS?
You'll probably get as many answers as there are adblockers but I've been using 2 (both free) and they've been pretty good; 1. Adguard 2. Firefox Focus

Google, Amazon banned my account.

They actively monitor purchase/refund ratio, credits issues, anytime this threshold is in the negative, you risk being warned, then banned.
I couldn't find any info on buyers being banned on amazon, sellers on the other hand is a different story. The whole point of buying it from amazon is the buyer experience. What do you do when a product doesn't meet your standards? I don't know any retail stores that ban you for returning a merchandise.
Just a basic example, buddy over here bought a 2 pack screen protector and got sold 1 used and 1 new whereas he paid for 2 new. Whos fault is that? I bought Beats headphones, when they come in and they don't meet the standards (quality, authenticity, state of the product), whos fault is that? Amazon has thousands of sellers and thousands and thousands of shitty products that either don't work or break after a brief period of time. Amazon did reduce their return window from 60 days to 30 days, but banning or warning people because they are not happy with a product is just ridiculous. Most people are prime paying members and I personally only opted for prime was for shipping speed and ease of returns, take those away and I have no reason to buy from amazon, ebay will do just fine.
Now that all being said, I am not saying that buyers have not been banned, I just couldn't find it (maybe I didn't look hard enough)

What? Guess you didn’t use the search term suggested by rebel_rfd....

Google: << Amazon banned my account >>


Here’s the first result which explains it in an article from October 25:

Return too many items on Amazon? Will Amazon Ban your Account?

UPDATED ON OCT 25, 2017 BY TUAN DO

If you are an Amazon shopper, you must be very happy with their service and convenient return policy, especially when you buy items shipped and sold by Amazon. They even pay for return shipping if your received item is defective or doesn’t match the description.

However, it doesn’t mean that you can abuse the system and use it as a try-out/rental service. Many Amazon accounts have been suspended when users request refunds excessively and there is no way to appeal the decision. So, what is the return limit and how to avoid being banned by Amazon?

I actually just plugged the first line and got few seller ban results and stopped looking lol, my bad, it just seems F'd up that they do this. I am going to start buying locally more I suppose, especially if they price match.

Most likely holiday return policy is now in effect?
