My thread was rejected because it was "advertising" when it clearly was not

Postby gassy69 » Fri Sep 07, 2018 2:57 pm UTC

Last night I registered and wrote a huge, detailed thread asking for technical help with a problem I'm having with a gas barbecue.

Today I receive a notification that my topic has been rejected because "The reported message has the only purpose to advertise for a website or another product".

Does asking about a specific model of barbecue actually constitute advertising now?

I can't even edit my post to remove any reference to the brand name of barbecue - my topic has just "disappeared".

Can someone please help me recover the topic and edit it so it can be approved?

Please read the rules thread. It explains why your topic was removed.

Your original post is gone. There is no method of recovery.
