if its mod removed you usualy get a pm to let you know, if its member spammed then you wont, when your in deals just click filter by merchant, usually spot there if its a dupe, if i spam a deal and its a pretty new member i have started to pm them to let them know

I think it's good practise to pm someone, where possible, that you're expiring it due to repetition -

this way the member learns something, and is less likely to post future duplicates, requiring less effort from members and mods to expire it. Realise many of us are really busy, but it helps keep the community spirit alive within the site's members. It can be disheartening to have your efforts just disappear, and not understand why - I got this happening and reposted about 3 times, before someone pm'd me to tell me it was a duplicate that my searches hadn't found.

I felt so much better after being advised; I'm mentally handicapped and the thought of someone else who's worse off being left bewildered isn't pleasant.

So, give a thought that someone may not have the same abilities as you have and aim to pm them, if you have the time. Thanks.

Duplicates should never be expired, once expired the deal stays until removed by mods. All duplicates should be spammed that way once a couple of members"spam" the deal then auto deletes.
