    HUKD used to be a site where people posted 'Deals'

    and in the main it still is, but if you look down the list of 'New' deals it looks to me as though certain retailers have struck up an arrangement to use us as their advertising vehicle.

    No, I mean where certain Mods post a load of deals, many for the same company, in one go. To me that smacks of a private arrangement being struck between those that run the site and certain retailers, quite probably for financial benefit. Obviously relying purely on members finding deals isn't enough any more but this policy isn't so far away from 'self-promotion', something that isn't allowed. Maybe if you offer a reasonable back-hander then you are allowed to self promote.
