This thread is in relation to the discussion http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?t=30568
here . I'll start off by quoting what I posted there:
"I don't understand why people must repeat marketer's claims and, having fallen for their tricks themselves, then push it on the rest of us. I feel I am quite capable of deciding whether something is a bargain myself without hearing all the marketing guff repeated (and often created) by members of this board."
"It's just a general comment on this whole forum - I think we can do without the !!!!!! and "wow!!!!!!!!!" etc."
I don't want to pick on individual threads/posters so I'll try and leave this as general as I can. The main posts I'm talking about are:
[* misleading/lacking titles (one that I find incredibly annoying is "20% discount" without saying where - I shouldn't have to click the thread just to see whether I'm interested).
[* marketing speak and general use of adjectives ("amazing offer!" - thank you but I will be the judge of that)
[* non-sales (we must have all realised by now that shops like Play will put a "sale" on without altering prices at all, do we really need a post every time?)
[* overuse of exclamation marks/caps ("WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!111" - unnecessary and distracts from other posts) So do feel free to post your feelings on this. Does it annoy you or am I oversensitive? Any other examples I've missed or do you disagree with any I posted?
