Have a look at this -

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/324784/credit-crunch-2-weeks-holiday-from-/showthread.php?t=324784&page=1

The person that subbed this post thought she would try and save a few folk some dosh by highlighting a deal. Instead, she gets a mouthful of abuse from twits (feel free to swap the i for an a).

This site is a community that is meant to save folk cash. If the deal is not for you it's simple - don't vote. Snide, nasty comments are not required.

Ever wondered why there aren't more members than voyeurs. There are currently 9086 folk viewing this site of which 7701 are Guests and 1385 Members.

I saw a great deal today and bought an item from sainsburys for £20 which was reduced from £80 but I decided not to post because based on my previous posts some fool would put some personal, irrelevant comment or slur on my character. I thought, so why bother.

Rant over!

I'm afraid it could be the end of this site though as folk (like me) will stop posting.

Half the people that complain have only become members so they can complain. Become part of the Misc and FS/T forums, Deals section is good for when you have cash burning a hole in your sky-rocket!
#9
I totally agree with you, that was a great deal and people can't just read, say thats not for me and not post or leave bad feedback. Aahhhhh it annoys me.

I think people should comment on why they voted a deal cold, Some of the comments are totally unnecessary though.
#12
everyone a little too obsessed with rep/heat etc anyway I think
#13
Yep I probably won't bother wasting my time posting deals either as I've just posted a deal and within minutes people are voting cold without leaving any comments. I'll just sit back and let everyone else do the hard work posting deals now :thumbsup:
#14
Yeap I must admit I see deals and think - Why bother!

How many are slipping through?

I don't give a rats bottom about rep and I don't expect to change the world. I do believe that hostility is becomming a bit too normal and acceptable. It will only get worse cos everyone says just allow it or shut up.

Hang around OP, Don't let those intimidating A###oles get you down and beat you off!

OK.

On any internet forum, there will be people looking to be negative or to cause confrontations. You have to live and roll with it here.. Ignore them. They’ll either get cleaned up if you report it or if you ignore altogether it shouldn’t frustrate you. Thank lord it wasn’t cold as well.

Correct, they are not.

Snide, nasty comments are not required.

errr… yeah.

Not everyone wants to register and chat. If they wish to do so they will do it of their own free will and for their own reasons. This site is driven a lot I would think by people who just click ‘go to deal’ and buy, rather than those registered.

I saw a great deal today and bought an item from sainsburys for £20 which was reduced from £80 but I decided not to post because based on my previous posts some fool would put some personal, irrelevant comment or slur on my character. I thought, so why bother.
If you don’t want to, then don’t. No once is forcing you to. Although saying what you got here shows to me that you want everyone to see what you got and we didn’t; a bit ‘gloatish’.

People will vote cold. People will be unpleasant. That’s the nature of internet forums. I’d rather have 100 benefit from a deal and 10 be idiots than none get it at all.

Besides, given the site’s size it is likely that 9 times out of 10 now if you don’t post ‘the deal’, someone else probably will.

Personally, the ratio between members/posts and moderators is not high enough. There should be more mods, much more visibly active.

I'm not saying the existing mods don't do a job, I just think there should be more to clamp down on anything untoward immediately.
#17
this site has too many members a few ppl posting negative comments is no biggy...welcome to the real world lol
#18
Time served posters, someone spots a half decent deal then on you get the whopper with 9000 posts always ready to shoot you down.... funny thing is when one gets home from work and logs on to read all the posts through the day you see the same beauts commenting/posting on deals - do these people work? or do they wait ready to pounce on some poor unsuspecting poster..... the mind boggles
