Why does legit internet deal ($34.99 for 75Mbps)keep getting deleted in hot deals?

I understand original post was from the company rep but why can't users share the deal in a new thread?

The nonsensical covefe message I got was
.initial thread removed due to spam, now reposts are recruiting other members to shill
It's a legit deal and not spam and not posted by the seller

So how is it shill ? Isn't hot deals just users shilling good deals then if posters put up a deal they find?

And it's gone again

The covefe reason today is
deal already posted in cannet thread
Are the mods just playing dumb and think carrytel and cannet are same?

Cannet doesn't even have this deal

I'll check into it. The fact that it first appeared because they were self promoting likely has something to do with it.

I read that Cannet claims they are a direct competitor of Carrytel, which is why they have deals that target Carrytel customers who switch over.

Seems strange that Cannet is getting extra preferential treatment on RFD over the competitor Carrytel. I get it that Cannet is a sponsor and all but that shouldn't block any postings about deals from any of the competitors . There is more than one GTA tire sponsor on RFD and they are all allowed to post deals, and we can still post deals from the other tire competitors (non-sponsors) as well without issue, and nothing is being deleted or edited. Also notice that Cannet has countless threads all promoting the same deal and none of them are being merged. What's up with the promoting of internet service providers? I think it's only fair that we should be able to compare as many deals as possible, provides healthy competition which is better for us as RFDers and consumers.
Tis banana is IRIE :razz:

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