Now....... It has arrogance and no commication with members.

I understand that it's main focus is as a buisness but without members it's nothing - yet we don't seem to matter anymore. It's more like the gestapo.

For me I think I'll move on and find a site that cares a bit more.......

Thanks sigma - you have been someone who cared and still does - unlike a lot of the rest of the site - don't want to get into it but appreciate your help. Site just feels different and not about the people anymore.

by other members I don't give a t*ss but with the site itself that has built itself through people I do.

It's like bad customer service - you don't want to go back as you don't feel a worthy customer.

As a lurker more than a poster, this place used to have some edge, proper hot deals. Now it just seems to be updates on supermarkets latest bog roll offers, eejit trolls out for an argument, and half witted chavs trying to out-chav each other.

I used to traipse through the site on an almost OCB basis, but I'm now looking to other places! I truly think there is a business model for someone smarter than me to set up a selective rival, using the gmail /demonoid invitation model to make a mint. Proper deals, with up to date vouchers, not arguing about niff naff and 1 store only deals which the OP bought.

i agree, sigma is one of the good mods- atleast gives u a proper explanation for her warnings, thread closures etc unlike some who just take the easy route- Just suspend the member!!!:x
i was suspended in one thread for just telling that it is a good car-
http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/634480/fs-2001-x-toyota-celica-1-8vvti

and its just not me- a lot of people happened to be doing similar stuff- in so many other threads- just say 'aaaawwww its a lovely dress', 'oh thats so cute' etc etc. Still dont understand what some mods see is right and what is wrong!!
banned#38
op on the whole i agree with you. it just seems like the majority seek pleasure in putting other people down nowadays and it gets a little boring after a while. I wont be using the site much in a while. because as you put it so clearly, it's not what it was.

For the umpteenth time - no thread spoiling in fs/ft allowed. Review rules #14 and #15 if in any doubt.

All such posts will be actioned in the same manner should we be aware of it.

As for the OP, we genuinely don't wish any member to leave. It's well worth reflecting upon in the morning and contacting a mod or admin should you wish your issues to be resolved.

As the thread is now heading towards another direction:

We'll close until your issue has been addressed.
