      Hm, yeah. I'm seeing so much unread content that I have read. Maybe some kind of rollback.

      You can’t make a rule about everything.

      Use common sense.

      Common sense would imply that removing your Original Post and running away won’t sit well with the community.

      Here lies Nekki. He loved massive amounts of storage, K-Pop and calling people cunts.

    • "Common sense"? I'm enchanted because that means we can crucify him, right? Yay!

      I have a complaint about the abelist nature of this forum.

      I clicked "Post Comment", and I received an error message of "Body is required."

      Being of person born without the constraints of a torso, I am highly offended!

      This must be the first time you arguing against bodies.
      Especially those with specific features.

      Quote the law it's breaking. (p.s you can't, it's not but it should be banned either way)

      Not illegal but definitely breaking Gapps policies.

      It should be banned the same way anything that relates to breaking policies is banned.

      I think you missed the point. Selling Gapp accounts is not illegal. Its against Googles terms of service. Which enables them to shut you down whenever they want, but the big bad government is not going to storm your apartment and shoot you for selling them.

      Same with using TE though, which is also seen on LET as a bad thing.

      Well, I agree and the threads requesting them are mostly 1 post wonders.

      I've thought about it. It would be in the spirit of the rules we already have here. If you post about ways to violate the terms of service of other providers, or ask for help in doing so, we don't allow it because driving away hosts by making this a sanctuary for everything that harms them is not in the best interest of this community by any stretch of the imagination.

      Then again we're not at risk of losing Google's LET offers...

      Then again, most people looking to buy/sell gapps seem to be one-post-wonders which do not contribute anything to the community as a whole. Nothing would be lost by banning it either. Might even clean up the frontpage a bit.

      Uhuh, that's exactly what you wanted. After driving AOL into the ground and doing who-knows-what to Yahoo's management you needed this one last peace of puzzle to fall into place. Demise of Google's "We Are Going Bankrupt, Save Us Emma" type of offers. Make them swear off from LET. No double storage Gmail promos, no recurring Adwords discounts, no nothing.

      Nothing will stop your little email empire...

      Or not?...

      Not sure about the booters, thread but the 'Prouts CoLo Thread' idea would make it much easier for you to track him!

      Xei said: I picked up a $2.50 Vultr plan recently. Only location is NJ though but it works fine. Hard to claim it's a scam if it exists/works as it should IMO.

      I have tried replying to this post, describing why I consider the mentioned plan to be a "scam", also presenting some evidence. My post was deleted (i.e. not even moved to the offtopic thread, while the "hard to claim" opinion is allowed to stay. Can I please know who deleted it and on what grounds, and if possible have it reinstated -- if not fitting either of the two threads, as a new topic.

      @hawc Why did you leave this non-voting post then? Doesn't look good at all, you let the brief and meaningless pro-Vultr opinion stay, but delete my reply (which btw required some considerable effort to put together) with evidence which countered it.

      Not to mention, I got this in E-Mail:

      Xei mentioned you in 2017 Provider Of The Year

      I hate adding to the rules, but this directly address a trend that has been problematic for me and continues to grow over time. Added:

      Moderators and admins are people too

      >

      You'll be expected to treat us like human beings. We are not robots that experience no emotion, we are not contracted third parties, we are human and members of this community.

      >

      We will not tolerate having our judgment or impartiality repeatedly called into question for the purpose of causing unrest in the community, addiction to drama, or manipulating us into reversing decisions ("well if you're not hiding anything then bring back the thread you deleted").

      >

      If you believe that one of us has acted out of turn and made an improper decision, you can request additional information or review at support.lowend.io. Please understand that "request" does not mean you are entitled to either. We may approve or deny any request without stated reason. If that flares up your paranoia, maybe this community is not a good fit for you.
