    someone might want a kickback because they think your making money out of it like a retailer.

    maybe because in direct competition with retailers who are sponsors here

    i'm sure admin will explain all

    All bulk buys have been in direct competition with sponsors in the past, the last bulk buy I did any money left over went to the Children's Cancer Foundation ($112 receipt number 25930). Doing a bulk buy of electrical goods on a public forum has to be kosher, I would not be allowed to sell electrical goods without an electrical certification.

    Yes, but Admin have not always acted calmly. Look at the amount of users that just disappeared recently.

    It was removed from the new posts section and locked, as stated above even disappeared, unless there is a night shift in admin could only be done by a moderator, and unless we have new undercover moderators I can't see another explanation.
