Why do so many new members say that when posting their first deals? I've never seen any thing like it before, does this place have a stinking reputation across the internet/on other forums? Is it just that they are mainly lurkers who know deals often don't go down well?

Either way it's not a good sign imho, that so many people feel the need to ask folks here to go easy on them!

I think they're masochists who are just asking for some torture :lol:

I've seen similar on lots of forums, it's a common thing IMO.

I said this in 1990 to my 1st customer when I got a job with Royal Mail, so it's not just t'internet.

I agree here. Also, it's a useful thing when it comes to welcoming new users: see that and you remember to stick in a "welcome to HUKD" or a "thanks for your first deal".

Probably a lot of these nice people are refugees from Ebay and the infamous Q & A Forum where you do indeed plead for your life before posting for the first time, or any other time come to think of it.
