No group buying deals for you!

I went to the dentist last week and saw this sign:

No groupbuy deals for you!

It reads:

通知
拜爾齒科自2012年起,從未通過任何平臺
發佈過口腔服務的團購信息。
請消費者互相轉告!如通過購買團購到店,
拜爾齒科無法提供相關服務。

Translation:

NOTICE
Since 2012, Byer Dental has not, on any platform,
published any group buying deals for dental work.
Please pass the word on! If you’re here through a group buying deal,
Byer Dental cannot provide those services.

Makes me wonder what happened. Fraudulent group buying (團購) deals online (created by the competition?), sending hordes of cheapskates in need of greater dental hygiene to Byer’s door? Or perhaps just a 2011 full of ill-advised group buying engagements in Byer’s past?

Is there no end to the evils brought on by all this wanton Groupon clonery?
