Q: Valid coupons being expired before date

Why do valid coupons get expired before the date listed, then someone else lists the exact same Information getting the credit instead of the first person who listed it? I don't catch it very often, but the few times I do makes me wonder how often this happens.

I have seen this many times. It hurts the original poster.

Happens ALOT more than we think so it appears. :(
It's just as bad in deals - someone comments negatively (not following the deal instructions) and it gets expired. Couple hours later, it's updated as "working again" by someone else (taking half).

UHH... it happened to me again already this morning with a BananaRepublic coupon I added 8 hours ago. Somehow it's expired now and reposted already.
