    Question [Q] Why are autobuy links frowned upon?

    I recently asked a question and a user mentioned that autobuy links were bad. Why does the community think that they're bad?

    (Sorry about asking so many questions)

    Because they could be used to take advantage of someone?

    How so? And if I used one, would the thread be removed/would I get bad rep?

    Autobuy is not allowed.


    Please be aware of imposters. I do not own a Skype account and I will NEVER contact you outside of MPGH.

    You would receive an infraction and the thread would be removed. But as stated by @kok12383, it leads outside of MPGH which is outside of our jurisdiction, and it leads to people getting scammed - which we would rather not have, and avoid completely.
