Ask HN: Why is my submitted link dead?
3 points by tocomment 1650 days ago | hide | past | web | 4 comments | favorite
I just tried to submit this url "http://www.greencarreports.com/news/1080482_tesla-model-s-buyers-face-year-end-deadline-7500-at-stake" and it came up as "dead" on the new page.

I'm not sure. My old account became blocked for some reason. I never submitted anything bad or submitted often. That said, I've never posted with this account yet.

The way I realized I had a blocked account was sending a link to my submissions page to a friend who couldn't see it.

The page is http://news.ycombinator.com/submitted?id=[your_name_here]

Same thing happened to me. I didn't comment nor vote in ~200 days and I recently found my account had been hell banned (and it wasn't at the time I had submitted my last comment), so I opened another one. Pretty annoying though.

url is blacklisted

Hmm, why is that? Is it the whole domain or that particular URL?

It doesn't seem especially offensive.
