    I just got this message and 2 points warning alert from Super Moderator.

    Your message (https://www.blackhatworld.com/posts/12239787/) has resulted in a warning for breaching our Thread Hijacking policy, specifically :

    Interested to order but bunch of negatives..
    I'll keep away from it.


    Thread hijacking is against the terms on BHW and does not follow our rules. Your message may have been removed or altered.

    Your account's access may be limited based on these actions. Continued breach of our terms of service will result in the removal of your account from our site.


    As it's not so clear for me, and while searching for "hijack" word is not even exist in this page,
    https://www.blackhatworld.com/help/terms

    Can anyone assist what I did wrong?

    Also what warning point really means?
    It stated that I am now limited for doing actions.. what actions?

    Any help would be really appreciated

    You are only meant to post on BSTs if you are a buyer or asking the seller a question as a potential buyer.

    Your comment was neither as a buyer nor asking the seller anything.

    It was just post count inflation, offered zero information to the thread, which was a BST and not a discussion thread.

    Plus you posted this thread in Introductions, which it clearly is not.

    sales threads are for the buyer/seller
    posting random gibberish on a users sales thread
    that has nothing to do with the product = hijacking

    spamming lots of trivial posts in quick succession
    = post inflating .
