Maybe get a life outside a deals website?

Found 9th Oct 2009
Having a quiet afternoon at work (skiving), unfortunatley all websites I would like to get onto other than this one are blocked!

I have just spent the last half hour laughing out loud at some of the 'chat' on Misc! Why do people take a deals website so seriously? They talk about 'friends' on here...surely people don't class their 'cyber HUKD pals' as real friends? All this talk of PM'in each other, chatting on MSN really etc etc ETC is just creepy. We keep telling kids not to talk to STRANGERS on the internet...but it seems even the oldies are at it!

Read something about cyber bullying/gossiping as well...PUL-LEESE...anyone who give out enough information on a deals website (or even worse via a PM) to a STRANGER deserves to be 'talked out'...on the other hand why anyone would care that the were being talking about by a STRANGER fup only knows!

Que loads of posts by members who are 'friends' with each other and excessive use of the words babe/hunni/sweetie LMAO

Agreed. Fair Use Policy on telling strangers personal info sounds reasonable on here. :w00t:

But some of the chat or need for help is just so touching: hotukdeals.com/ite…ice ;-)

Surely a good psychiatrist could sign up to HUKD for these people :roll:

+1 and it also enables people to pass on tips and other helpfull things to others. I must say my life is good for being a member of HUKD and I have saved a fortune as well.

Everyone has an opinion and this is mine

I agree with you...It is only a deal site..It made me laugh someone wanted to donate to the site and asked others to..I though hang on a min if its a penny saved this site would say its a great deal so donations are a no no.= when penny pinching is the aim!

I totally agree with you that HUKD is a great website, my point is that the misc part of the website (alot of the time) isn't about 'passing on tips and other helpful things' .... It people wanting a big group cyber hug over them missing a bus or asking what they are up to that day...

Agreed that everyone has their own opinion...mine is that it give me the creeps!!

So they choose to communicate through an open deals forum instead of phoning, emailing, msn'ing or....wait for it....speaking to each other face to face...yip thats creepy too!!

Thanks for explaining yourself further and in some ways i think you could be correct at times but sometimes people need the interaction and maybe the struggle to make friends in the real world is to difficult.
But as before i thankyou for your honest opinion.

Have a good wekend!

Face to face??? Now your going a step too far lol

i have met a few people from here and all very nice nothing weird about them at all

Chunky, why are you on this website?


What a weird question? Hotukdeals.com - does the title not give it away?
I would have a look on the website if I wanted to buy something to see if there was a better price, I sometimes buy things I see and don't normally need. I have sumbitted deals and asked for information before 'eg where to go or where to get something'. I have also sold a few things.
As per my original post, this is also one of the very few websites that isn't blocked at my work!
Enough sharing????

The OP seems like a classic hypocrite to me lol

You have to bear in mind most of the population dont go to work these days so have a lot of time to fill

it is in the title...but if this site was dedicated to only deals then there would not be a 'misc' and thus the owner knows that if you want more traffic, more people checking the deals, more people using the clickthroughs thus more money then he knows he has to let relations grow and encourage people to stay on the site as much as possible!
