    Why bother posting ?

    I stumbled across hukd just before Xmas, and managed to pick up assassins creed unity for the ps4 from Tesco for 25 quid, a great spot from the poster as it wasn't marked down in my local store, it was still showing at £45 on the shelf. As a newbie i thought that, this is what this site is all about. I have since that day been on here everyday, and for me it appears its just full of people that moan or make smarty ass comments when a poster post something that isn't to their liking, I cant believe for 1 minute that someone would post something about a offer in their local asda or tescos or anywhere else, if they hadn't personally found a deal. If something is local and somebody nearby gains something from that post, then its job done. Why all the negative comments when someone posts anything, it seems this way all just about every offer i have read. If its not for you or your not interested in it, then read it and move on. Someone enlighten me please if i am wrong here ?

    That was such a hilarious comment. Thank you.

    Hi Morphy... you've gotta take the rough with the smooth here! Don't take comments to heart too much, take advantage of the deals that are useful to you, share those that you think may be useful to others, and don't get too hung up on deal heat. Misc though, that's a completely different kettle of fish. Stand your ground and take no prisoners.

    But surely if a deal benefits 1 person, then all is good, the amount of posts ive read about people going on wild goose chases around stores, why don't they phone if they are not near a local store ? common sense !!. And i thought it might have been asked before, but being a newbie i wasn't quite sure where to look. Maybe i didn't want to ask the question in fear or being ridiculed by the bullies on here.

    Exactly. Focus on that and don't get hung up on anything else. Don't feel you ever have to justify any deals you post, if it's helped you, there's a high chance it will help someone else. Forget the rest of it.

    i.e. not here long enough to see those that create "Deals" that do not exist, or give hope to others that the offer quoted is either national, or sufficient stock exists at a single store to meet (the reader's) demand.

    The ability to vote on a "Deal" ("Voucher", or "Freebie") thread &/or provide a comment on the subjective usefulness of the product or service has always been a source of contention.

    Note the "subjective" element. If one product satisfied everybody's needs there would be no need for competitive products. Products would then just be a price, a higher price, or a lower price than normal.

    The site's function would just be a price comparison engine. It is more than that.

    I agree, it's turned to ****.
    If you're a lurker without an account, I suggest you stay like that and not get mixed up with the drama BS on this site.

    don't take it to heart,it would have benefited some people.my second deal was shot down in coldness because it was hugo boss baby socks,apparently knitting your own for 50p is the in thing! anyhoo without the hot and cold many a good bit of banter on threads gets lost.keep posting your deals.....without these the site would dry up!

    Note the number of times a question is asked when the same text could have been typed into a web search engine & within 30 seconds or so the answer could be gained.

    Yes, there is a difference between those that want items as cheaply as possible [i.e. humans] versus those that want "something for nothing" (or no effort), but people are tending to need "spoon-feeding" because of laziness as technology in their lives increases & the ability to think for themselves decreases. Actually doing something for themselves, such as telephoning a store when somebody else can do that for them is the preferred option.

    If the same people had something productive to do with their day then surely they would not be here for as long as they are on a daily basis.

    As miikey' mentioned, do what you feel you need to do to repay your use of the site, ignore those that do not appreciate your time, & feel good that you have helped somebody. That somebody may not have commented, but out of the many members that read the site's contents daily, you will have helped a decision; perhaps not in favour of the product you mentioned, but indirectly with a purchase being considered.

    theres always gonna be negative people on here...some folks are only happy when they're miserable! My only complaint about this site is if people vote a price cold, they should have to say where they've found it cheaper. Finally, don't take it personally, keep posting deals.
