I think you might have too much time on your hands...

Ultimately I don't think there is any way to patrol it. If the film is new the likelyhood is that people won't vote hot or cold on the price but on there thoughts on the film. However there is little way to stop this.

Thanks, I was just starting a discussion, no need to be rude about it.

And as I said, I didn't think anything would be done, I just wondered what people thought.

Sorry it was a light hearted jesture. No offence meant.

No. I don't 'do' smileys....if people don't know when I'm extracting the urine then tough..read it, read it again & if you don't get the gag then I'm wasting my time 'talking' to you....

As for your idea Bristol...
I can see the sense in what you're saying & I generally don't bother posting (when I bother) anything that's less than 20-40% cheaper (on DVD's/games/etc) than elsewhere but ultimately, not every member bothers with a price comparision prior to posting, not every UK retailer will show up on a comparision site (rife with backhanders a lot of 'em) & unless the system was set up using a specific Price Comp site & forced you to input not just your "Hot" price, but the next up I fail to see this ever being implemented/enforced.....
Even the idea that people may read this & think twice before posting something 50p cheaper would be exceptionally naive given the number of deal hunters that seemingly never venture in misc, never mind the number of members that rarely if ever poke their heads 'round feedback's door.

As I say, I can see the sense, there have been items & times when it's made me shake my head but I just can't see it changing.

I agree. Most people need some serious education when it comes to shopping.
Find-dvd do email alerts on Dvd proce drops so if you want a film you just need to look on there, and if the price is too high - wait a while. The odds of someone posting a deal on a film I actually really want are slim - in which case I would only make an impulse purchase on the basis somethine was percieved as cheap.
