That post was not deleted by Mulder.
It was deleted based on T&C
"Posting or soliciting for promo/referral codes is not allowed"

There is also a new one for Politics but I expect that to not be so relevant for Australian members - unless somebody wants to explain to the the rest of the world what took place here last week.
