It is useful, I've used it myself in the past ..... I just wondered how it could be considered a deal

Well it's the same scenario as this thread and it reached over 4000 heat. I am guessing it is just discretion but I personally think the wider audience it is broadcast to the better.

Like I said I agree it's useful info, but that's all it is. Perhaps there should be another section for money saving and financial related information like this and the example you found.
It would be nice if someone from HUKD commented.

Its very similar to the other Gov.uk thread so it was decided it could stay where it is. Thanks.

Thanks Jay ... Don't you think these 'infoposts' could do with a section of their own. I know you won't admit it but information about what pension you might receive when you reach retirement age is not a deal. :)

They do have a section of their own mate. Misc.

Not sure how thats a deal either, surely its a heads up seeing as theres not a single item posted.

I did comment in the thread asking but it was deleted and whichever mod did it couldn't be bothered to send a pm to let me know what rule I broke.

It's a post for people who may not know about the outlets on eBay. It's in the section of the site where the majority of users will see it and may benefit from it.

Don't worry about it. it isn't hurting anyone by being there.

I agree and some of the comments support that as well. It's a Mods post so there's no way that it will be removed and like nearly every post by mods or HUKD staff you can guarantee it will get very hot. It will probably be a HUKD pick as well! It's frustrating but there's nothing we can do about it!

I wonder how long it will last if I put a post up saying 'Some shops have sales, sometimes' then list John Lewis, Amazon, Currys, Tesco, Asda etc.

I put a deal up a while ago which was moved to misc which was more of a deal than this, and I've seen plenty of others moved too.
Very disrespectful to remove my post though without bothering to PM me, and also leaving other comments that are pretty much the same as mine.

so I just got an infraction for asking on the thread what I put above, yet the whole thread is pretty much full of comments exactly the same!

It's no good fighting the system because the system will win every time. :)
There have been many discussions over the years about what is a deal, problem is that it means different things to different people and some people are less tolerant about the 'rules' being bent than others. I have raised the issue several times without success and I get the feeling now that I am regarded as a miserable old git. In reality that's not true at all. Over the years I have tried very hard to contribute and when I post a deal I try to ensure that it conforms to my interpretation of what I think a deal should be. It frustrates me therefore when I see other posts that clearly do not conform, especially when they attract a lot of heat (There are a select number of posters that would get heat no matter what they post!). At the end of the day we all have an opinion but ultimately HUKD can allow whatever they want and there's sod all we can do about it so the best thing to do is try and ignore it. Sad but true ... :(

I saw your comment on that thread. Are you sure your infraction wasn't because of your misuse of the spam button.

misuse? it isn't a deal so should be spammed. Regardless, it was for trolling, which, if it was, there are a lot of members getting infractions today.
