I tried to post a link to the fairbuy website but was told it's a bad word. Why's that?

As I said in my first reply, there's only one reason why we would blacklist a domain name, and after reviewing the records, yes, that's it.

I have no idea. They only thing I know is there was a person who submitted the URL multiples times.

What is the reason? Someone submitted their URL to where multiple times?

A friend of mine purchased from them with no problems, and there are a few reports of people on GZ getting products from them fine.

Is it so hard to understand? SOMEONE WAS SPAMMING THE URL IN MANY DIFFERENT TOPICS SO WE BLACKLISTED IT.

Oh, when you said submitted, you meant posted to a thread. That's why I asked what you meant when you said submitted.
