Re: Anyone else get banned from Buying a Graphix card?

Jump to solution

The truth is much more sinister then a technologic explanation. On eBay and maybe other locations there are scalpers offering more then one card.

One of the explanations could be that that person(s) just where lucky. But with the one card per address, luck can be ruled out.

The second explanation could be much more to the real thing. They are helped out by AMD internal employees and AMD just blocked the site for a couple of minutes and allowed only some specific IP's to shop. Why, cookies are in current times never an issue in 99.9999% of errors.

 

I cannot prove it, but it is the most logic explanation.

My previous job if all else failed it was clear the cookies and that worked almost all of the time, so I can through experience over the last 4yrs say it is still a thing...  The stupid thing is that I did not think of it here.. GRRRRR😂🤣🙄

I got the stupid access denied, after trying to refresh my way out of a 503 error. Thankfully, my order made it through, as I got the order submitted email.

Got it in the cart and then they decided to ban me with that error.  Going to keep trying the shuffle, I think it is more fair, when a good card shows up. Be it Team Green or Red. At this point who cares.
