Apparently the books are as dangerous as the balls themselves.

I am not sure I can post my deal here so they know what I am asking but it was for The Big Book of Bucky sold by Amazon. Wedit. Link Removed
My deal was The Big Book of Bucky for $5.47 + free shipping

@gmwhit: I was in the process of responding on that question when it went poof. Wow. I was going to suggest a buck-y theme meme. A protest meme, if you will. Buck knives, buck teeth pacifiers, Billy-bob buck teeth, buckwheat pillows, a veritable flood of posts should do it.

That's too bad. They shouldn't have. But, I agree, why is the gearsxs deal still active, and none the less with those tags?

@ohcheri: They were here to delete my book deal. I am going to try again.

One could ask why http://www.gearxs.com can still have deals here when they market the balls to kids but when a book posted from Wedit. Link Removed (the same people who tells you striaght up do not give this to kids) we get a WE'RE SORRY. DEALS.WOOT DOES NOT ACCEPT DEALS FROM
Wedit. Link Removed
But I am done.

@caffeine_dude: I know, I voted for it when you posted it. It was a great deal.

No offence admin, but taking 30 seconds to post an answer will be easier then deleting my deal again because I can only assume it was deleted by mistake.

@pickypickypicky: I'm in. I actually love your deal in its own right as well :)

vote-for9vote-against

:( I agree it is a little over board deleting the post about the book. Also i did think it was funny about not intended for children to eat. lol. to bad i couldn't see how others posted to your ad.

@ohcheri: The evil magnetic balls deal from gearxs are gone now too!

note
(that was sarcasm I like buckyballs and am very sadden that woot is no longer allowing them on the site. I was disappointed when woot allowed cheap knockoffs that were marketed with tags such as kids toys, but woot did take them off too)
Now time to write The Consumer Product Safety Commission. To bring Buckyballs back to America and back to Woot!

@caffeine_dude: Man, I guess I'm going to have to train you better. When you have funny tags, you're supposed to SAVE them.

tag == "you knew this was going to be asked"

I removed the underscores because they'll be interpreted as a desire on my part to italicize every other word or so. I love your tags.

I know that daytime on the weekends is the shortest number of staff folks. I believe even the evenings on the weekends have more people. Just guessing, but it's a very educated guess.

@caffeine_dude: I empathize. I, too, posted a deal for the BOOK. The deal is the one listed on AMAZON. That deal was deleted. Then I asked a question that queried why a BOOK deal on Amazon was deleted. That question was also deleted.

An aside: Yes, I do understand that deals has their own rules & can choose to accept deals. Or not. And, that they chose NOT to accept deals from the official bucky site. I may not agree, but I'm okay w/that. Not okay w/deleting BOOK deals that are on AMAZON.

Sad, deals.woot. Very, very sad. :-(

@gmwhit: I was surprised they deleted your question so I'll make the same statement here that I made on your question:

I understand...maybe...banning b-balls from the site but banning the book is ridiculous. What next? Banning books about guns?

vote-for8vote-against

@ohcheri: Thanks! As I said earlier, this is so sad. Beneath them..or so I thought. Again, will say, it's their site; they can do as they please. Somehow this one does not make sense.

BTW: Saw your school girl deal. Really not that bad. ;-)

@zuiquan: Sorry for the way my post was worded. The deal is not from Amazon but from a different site. For the ADMINS do I need to tell you the website and coupon code for an answer?

@pickypickypicky: Also in. I actually own buckwheat pillows. ;-)

This could be interesting if you can find anyone home to answer. BTW the deal by gearxs is still up on the deals side. Different mods?

vote-for6vote-against

@baybei: I tattle asked that they at least change the tags for the magnetic balls.

vote-for6vote-against

It doesn't appear that anyone is working today. I've tattled multiple times on some spammers and received no response. Maybe a shout-out to the usual suspects?

vote-for6vote-against

@caffeine_dude: I went to Twitter and asked if anyone was working and suddenly the spam is gone...maybe you can get a reply soon.

vote-for6vote-against

@baybei: because deals.woot has sold out the gearxs asshats that keep paying for sponsored deals.

Wedit = mod edit.
The site in my post above is the home site of the Buckyballs not Wedit.
If I can not say Buckyballs then:
The site in my post above is the home site of the company you think of when you see 216 small BB sized magnetic balls, not Wedit.

Thanks mods for the wonder communication! < - That is sarcasm.

I posted a deal on a book about University of Wisconsin Bucky the Badger. I hope no parents decide to get their child a badger because of it. Although they probably are more edible than most toys the kids have.

vote-for5vote-against

@caffeine_dude: I knew what you meant... I was saying that Amazon was fulfilling the order on their site, which is saying that they are ok with selling it. In turn Woot should be ok with the book as well.

I was the original poster of the 45% off deal last night :( I just hope the people who want the books/balls were able to see the code or have found it elsewhere.

I recommended for children to not read the book but it would not hurt them if they ate it.

So they have apparently blacklisted the whole site? Talk about washing your hands of a good company....that ain't right.

vote-for4vote-against

@katjim00: They deleted the gearxs deal too, so I am guessing all magnet neodymium deals are gone for good.

vote-for4vote-against

@pickypickypicky: OK, I'm in too. Some of the deals have literally had me falling out of my chair. :)

vote-for3vote-against

What's even more surprising about your book deal being deleted is that Amazon is the actual seller of the book on their site... not a third party seller. I would think if Amazon thought it ok to leave the book up for sale then Woot would be ok with a deal for said book.

vote-for3vote-against

@katjim00: No amazon was not the seller, sorry for the confusion. I posted the amazon link to tell them it was ok to sell the book because amazon had it for sale.

vote-for3vote-against

@caffeine_dude: Ridiculous that they are singling out Buckyballs :( I wonder if you posted a deal that linked to Zen Magnets if that would be deleted too. Are they only accepting ball deals from third party sellers?
