it is becoming popular, link to a thread talking about it, also how to see who added the tag;-)

ops sorry forgot to add the link hotukdeals.com/ite…se/

Some of the people 'tagging' were leaving terrible comments. We seem to go through the stage every 6 months of people being rude and obnoxious....ah well, only a week or so to go until it passes!

As I stated in my Edit above guys, Admin have emailed me to say they are removing the offensive Tags. I don't see the post back yet though. Is it just me or does this happen a lot?

2. How can I stop people posting tags into MY postings in the future?



I can answer this one. You can't.

Maybe someone will be kind enough to show you a few threads that emma(moderator) and Admin have said about tags, but they are there for a reason.

I didn't see your thread/tags so do not about bans being handed out, but I hope not unless it was something that would warrant a ban if it were posted in a thread.

Believe me Saint, one of the words was VERY offensive!

the tags will be removed, but there is nothing you can do to stop the dipwits

That's the case. Recently, it's been tagging with insults and obscenities. Just a few people can make HUKD seem quite horrible - as you can see from the links to other threads, it is only a few. As Admin and everyone else now, can tell who is doing the tags, we hope that it will stop soon.

I would've thought that the swear filter would've caught it. :thinking:

Here is a guide about the use of tags:

Blasphemous - I hope this does not put you off posting deals. You can occasionally get a bad apple amongst the members or the odd member who goes off the rails for a short time but the mods usually sort them out. If you post a good deal you will get repped, thanked and heat added to your deal and sharing deals is what this site is about (and many members are good guys!).......

I thought it would be a good way to warn other members about the posters intentions before they get excited.



would it not be better to spam the thread, as it's a blatant attempt to get the vouchers

Hi chesso,

Don't know if you know the answer to this one but, if people are leaving offensive remarks and Admin know who they are, why aren't they Banned from the site? If you, me or indeed anyone made an offensive remark at work (and believe me, one of the words left on my post was VERY offensive), then we would face a disciplinary hearing and if it was the word that was used in the posting, you WOULD be Summarily Dismissed (sacked). Don't get me wrong, I know this isn't work and I know its a free forum where members are encouraged to put forward their opinions but there are young and old people reading these postings and they shouldn't have to put up with having to read those sorts of words on a forum such as this.... but that's just my opinion :roll:

Thank you gari189,

Its a great forum and i enjoy reading through many of the posts. I won't be put off

Swearing, rude comments, expletives, etc etc they're water off a ducks back to me but I am conscious of the younger (and older) members who don't want to be reading those sorts of words.

You would think so but it obviously didn't.

Ah well, no doubt it amused the little boy/girl who posted it...."tee hee! I posted a swear word on HUKD!"
Its 8.30pm now... time for bed little boy/girl, you've got school in the morning.

Its possible the swear filter doesn't work on the tags (I think it might not work on thread titles either)....

Sorry, commenting is no longer available on this feedback.
