Sometimes I have searched and searched and couldn't find the deal, even though it's already been posted.

Don't let people bother you, it's really not a big deal although I do agree with a lot of what you said!

Where are all my posts?


Ok, in a serious note yes, lots of rudeness and pettiness in the site as a whole.

There was a thread about a guy asking I know an amazing misprice, should I post it and risk not getting it? Lots of people saying don't post it and well done on keeping the info to yourself and bagging the bargain. Maybe you should keep all the deals to yourself and not post it (joking).


I agree to the OP especially this

People need to remember that members who post deals are taking out their own time, with no real personal gain (apart from a bit of status on a Deals site woohoo) - the majority are posting in the post that other people can get a good deal.



Think I deserve that brown nose award that disappeared. :)

Haylhoo,

Thanks for taking the time and effort to share your deals with others. As with all deal posters, we appreciate the willingness to share this info.

Please don't be put off by the minority few who grumble or point out that the thread is a repeat of an existing post. If you help one member, consider it a job well done. Likewise we can also appreciate the frustration felt by some when viewing duplicate deals, but there's no need for any derogatory remarks. We have a reporting structure that deals with these issues. In addition, we actively monitor deals in order to keep the board tidy and will remove the thread if deemed to be a duplicate.

Keep up the good work and we hope your experience is not spoiled.

Haylhoo There are a lot of idiots and knobs on here i'm afraid. Some very hurtful ones. But, just think to yourself that 'that is all they have in their life'. You will feel much better then.
I hate humour that is thrives on put down of others. See a lot of that here. People who think thye are so much better than others.

To be fair, its ironic you use the phrase 'that is all they have in their life' while suggesting you get 'hurt' by comments made by people you don't know, have never met, will never meet on an online shopping forum.

Yeah there are idiots - but I post my deal, and I let things take their course. I don't think I've ever seen a deal post where the right temperature (or least hot/cold) has not been achieved after a few hours.

If someone comes up with a stupid comment about a deal I post, I'll defend it, and myself. I certainly won't get "hurt" by anything said to me on this site.

I think asb summed it up well. Yes there are knobs here although the mods do their best to keep them to a minimum.

I'm sure your efforts and deals have been appreciated by many so don't forget the positive!

Admin could you confirm whether I fit into the knob category?

I'd like to make myself a badge if thats the case.

Good post and its nice to see these things are noticed :)

The success of the site means there are gonna be more "knobs" than ever and they like to try and get a rise :{ so dont let them get to you.

Positive responses from both Admin and other members appreciated - it's nice to know that there are a lot of people on this forum who aren't idiots (or make themselves out to be one).

Thanks!

Thats good idea maybe it could be badge to go on your profile which can only be awarded by the mods for outstanding contributions in the field of knobbiness.

I kinda of agree with the OP sometimes deals are full of more petty arguments than even Misc but there's not much that can be done. Best thing to do is to ignore and not let them provoke you.

I'll take a liberty here and answer on Admins behalf.

Yes you do. X)
