Can any mod explain or provide the link to any hwz or sph policies that restricts the use of private messages to share promo code?

Thank you for pointing me to the T&Cs. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

1. There isn't any clause that prohibit sharing of promo/referral codes in private messages.

2. What's hwz/sph's definition of spamming? Is replying PMs requesting for promo code constitute as spamming?

Dear Admin,

I beg to differ on your definition of 'spamming', which I believe imho is outright wrong.

Spamming is defined as sending unsolicited bulk messages, repeatedly.

If you do not agree on my definition of spamming, then please enlighten me, else I'll take it as you admit that you are wrong.

I have yet to receive your reply for my question below, please specifically list out the T&Cs please.

1. There isn't any clause in your T&Cs that prohibit sharing of promo/referral codes in private messages.

Hi,

Under our TOS, it states that you will not
(h) Advertise or offer to sell any goods or services for any commercial purpose.

As we have received multiple reports from other users on your PMs that contains promo codes/referral codes for commercial purpose, this is regarded as spamming.

If you require further clarification or would like to appeal against your infraction, please write in to membership@hardwarezone.com.sg.

Thanks.
