The current promotion means all sorts of new people / lurkers have been posting deals to try and get more karma. For me, that kind of defeats the point of the board, which was to highlight the best deals. It also means there are many more posts, which means it takes longer to sort the wheat from the chaff. And thirdly, making this site more popular means it is slowly becoming more MSE-esque.
I'm not having a go, I'm just interested in how other people feel?
