Thumbs down BANNED FROM SITE

So I've been banned from the site for some unknown reason.

I posted a Group Buy that I organized to help everyone save some money and that's my only post. I don't work for nor do I receive any benefits from the Group Buy besides the discount.

I've emailed the Admin(s) 3 times and have received "zero" response.

What's the deal?

You cannot just register, jump on this site and begin hocking your wares. That's not how it works around here. Long time members with good reputation are occasionally allowed, under certain circumstances, to organize group buys for the benefit of members. Your post did not meet such criteria. If you wish to become a supporting vendor, you can contact administrator. Otherwise, moderators must follow protocol and delete 'spam' and ban those who post it.

Just to alleviate any confusion as to Benzworld.org's terms of use, link located at the bottom of the website page, the following is a copy of the rules governing using this site to compel others to purchase items without the approval of the administration team. These Terms of Use were agreed upon when registration took place. I bolded the rule that applies in this case:

You may not:

• Restrict or inhibit any other user from using and enjoying the Web Site.
• Use the Web Site to impersonate any person or entity, or falsely state or otherwise misrepresent your affiliation with a person or entity.
• Interfere with or disrupt any servers or networks used to provide the Web Site or its features, or disobey any requirements, procedures, policies or regulations of the networks we use to provide the Web Site.
• Use the Web Site to instigate or encourage others to commit illegal activities or cause injury or property damage or interfere with business interests or contractual relations of any person.
• Gain unauthorized access to the Web Site, or any account, computer system, or network connected to this Web Site, by means such as hacking, password mining or other illicit means.
• Obtain or attempt to obtain any materials or information through any means not intentionally made available through this Web Site.
• Use the Web Site to post or transmit any unlawful, threatening, abusive, libelous, defamatory, obscene, vulgar, pornographic, profane or indecent information of any kind, including without limitation any transmissions constituting or encouraging conduct that would constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability or otherwise violate any local, state, provincial, national or international law.
• Use the Web Site to post or transmit any information, software or other material that violates or infringes upon the rights of others, including material that is an invasion of privacy or publicity rights or that is protected by copyright, trademark or other proprietary right, or derivative works with respect thereto, without first obtaining permission from the owner or rights holder.
• Use the Web Site to post or transmit any information, software or other material that contains a virus or other harmful component.
• Use the Web Site to post, transmit or in any way exploit any information, software or other material for commercial purposes, or that contains advertising.
Use the Web Site to advertise or solicit to anyone to buy or sell products or services, to cease using the Web Site, to visit another competing Web Site, or to make donations of any kind, without our express written approval.
• Gather for marketing purposes any email addresses or other personal information that has been posted by other users of the Site.

If anyone wishes to post a group buy here or anywhere else on the forum, please seek permission first and if permission is granted, we will be notified you have permission to post.
