Holy crap, htz is alive!

I haven't been posting much since I have been working through my backlog starting the new year. I just come on a few times a week for moderation stuff.

Thing is, if this has been going on for months, did anyone reach out and let him know the jig was up?  Was it being monitored for months and it was decided that was time to go permaban and that's it or just "oh look, we just found this out, been going on for a while, let's just permaban him and that's it"? like it went from no corrective action, as I've not seen him temp banned, silenced or the like, to a permaban with nothing in between.  If that's how it is now, then that's how it is, though back in the day, there were multiple steps to get someone permabanned, especially if they've been around for a long while.
The tactics of how DS2U did what he did aside, it seems like a "0 to GTFU" knee-jerk response by deciding "It's Thursday, time to permaban DS2U" without anything in between and no moderate corrective action beforehand.

I can't speak for what happen with DS2U since I found out about it only today. If I was handling it, I would ask for CheapyD's opinion, before doing anything if it's a long time member.

So reading that thread about affiliate links that Cheapy posted, it seems the links to AWD get converted automatically right? I think I use a plug-in for chrome that gives a portion of money from purchases to charity. I hope that doesn't count as an affiliate or shows up in the links. I would hate to be banned too. If you just post the link from the site/browser as usual, it should be okay I assume?
I don't want to take a side in all this, but in the end of the day, I think we should still be thankful to DS2U for all that he's done for this community, but also learn from the mistakes he has made. You could see from all those posts where he would update us on his family and the health of his father, that he really does care and connect with this thread/community. So what ever happens from this point on, I still wish the best for him and his family.

We have been seeing an increase with members that have been using URL shorteners to hide trackers and affiliate links. Even though we don't give warnings since it's clearly part of the TOS. We also do not ban immediately, it is usually something we monitor for a while to see if the member changes their behavior. This pretty much applies to every TOS violation since we have been instructed to be lenient with bans. So I wouldn't worry about accidental posting of affiliate links because we can tell the difference from the charity or copy pasting of links from other deal sites.

There's two sides to this: 
DealSeeker broke the rules but he also gave years of service posting links in which Cheapy benefitted directly from. 
Seems like a more level headed approach would have been to confront him and work out a deal to reward him for all his hard work rather than ban him. Something that would make both parties happy. 
I guess DealSeeker will be better off on his own Twitter though anyway where as he can make some extra money for himself rather than working tirelessly to advance someone else's income.

I think CheapyD would had given him a temporary ban after his apology if it was just an affiliate link due to his past history on the site. It's the part where he used a URL shortener and getting a similar affiliate tag as CAG that probably got him the permanent ban. He went through multiple steps to hide what he was doing. I was surprised to see he was banned yesterday myself since I know he's been a valuable member on CAG. He could have done it a better way like post a donation link in his signature instead. We even have a referral forum for referral links.

Just got mine. Everything is there I don't know if the COD 4 code works because it's bent in half but overall I'm happy with being able to get a PS4 for 155$.

Sent from my HTC6545LVW using Tapatalk

I just finished unpacking mine, it was really well packed with lots of bubble cushioning. The infinite warfare copy I got was the legacy edition which is still factory sealed. The only negative I can say is that they sent me a white PS4 controller first gen. I might be wrong but doesn't the white PS4 slim come with the newer revision controller with the light strip on the touch bar? Anyways can't really complain for the price I paid.

Is it a legit tracking number?  The scammers know they need to ship to get paid so they usually update the tracking info quickly to expedite that process.

Yes, screenshot taken from my usps dashboard. I get notified by them when a shipping label is created for delivery to my address. I should get it by Monday or Tuesday if they send it out today.

From time to time we get alerted to people not following the rules on this forum. A handful of CAGs have been placed in rule violation time outs for posting more than once every 3 days. Your trade forum posting privileges have been revoked for 1-2 weeks depending on if you have been suspended for the same reason in the past.
