I don't know if this is possible, but it would probably be easier if there was a simple way to reply/quote in the "sister" discussion thread.
For example next to the quote button, in an update-only thread, there can be another button to "Quote for discussion" which would automatically open the discussion thread and start posting a reply with the quote.
Better yet maybe change the default coding for "quote" on those threads:
For example right now quote on the first post in "[NO DISCUSSION!] Breaking News In The Israel-Hamas War" brings you to:
https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?action=post;quote=2763941;topic=134768.0
instead switch it to:
https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?action=post;quote=2763941;topic=134532.0
Small people talk about other people.
Average people talk about things
BIG PEOPLE TALK ABOUT IDEAS.

Tell me...
Aside for what users (and Dan!) were implying above, when it was discussed before I noted the lifnei iver aspects of having a negative button available at one's fingertips. I also think that it would immediately change the overall tone of the community. But these are just my opinions. I'm very happy there isn't one.

In the GFS forum when someone violates the rules the post is deleted when pointed out. Can you do the same for this thread: https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=134768.0

@BAHayman just added an insert image button with editing.
Try it out and let us know how it is!

We should either start counting posts on “just schmooze” to your total post count, or we should stop counting the posts from “general discussion” because half the topics on “general discussion” (such as this one) should really be by “just schmooze”

Post #Netfree.
Why do they filter out the entire board?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

The nuclear option, perhaps? They do worse elsewhere on the web, this is being treated with delicacy by THEIR standards.

RYBs on Netfree: "The great thing about them is that when they decide to block something, you can't make them change their minds. The chisaron is that when they decide to block something, you can't make them change their minds."

While what @mevinyavin writes is correct, I don't think that you have much to lose by contacting them and asking them why, and what you as a site owner would need to do to have it opened...

Nothing to lose, surely. I think I said this at the time it happened.

Let's not exaggerate too much. If you asked for something and were ignored, would you lose sanity?

Ignored is fine. I'm talking about the back and forth and the "we will check it out" and "nope, we can't open it for undisclosed reasons" etc. etc.
I once installed netfree on a tablet and it prevented me from using the sim card. It went back and forth for 3 months. Not so much fun. Oh. And they weren't able to help me in the end...

I believe that on the tablet they make you record a video of yourself saying that you understand that they do not have a removal option.
