I see...I wasn't aware that there was such a regulation, but it makes sense. Thanks for enlightening me!
One thing I was wondering about is what a user of this site gets from posting deals. I see 'rep' listings, but what does this mean? I see people griping about other users 'hogging' a deal, so I infer that there is some reason to increase rep.

whatsthedeal...after you get your reputation up you can apply for the MoneyMakers program and get paid for your posts. May make $50-100 per month just posting a few deals a day and commenting on others. So posting perpetual deals cuts into other people's earning potential. I think most people post expiration dates where they are made known, but the select few that Rez referred to seldom expire deals.
So lets say you find a deal on a site that is offered with an expiration date and you try to post it. The posting is flagged as a duplicate and you cancel your posting thinking that someone beat you to it, where in reality the posting was from 6 months ago, the last time the item was on sale. So you miss a posting because someone is posting 300 deals a day and cant be bothered to take the time and post specifics.

I understand EXACTLY (sorry for the caps) what you're saying... I happen to notice that all the time. Where they post all the sales into the comment area... ENCOREZ is right- it's unfair to hog all the deals into one link. It's one thing for the week's roundup, but thats not what Encorez is talking about.

Ok this all makes more sense to me now. I missed the info about MoneyMakers when skimming the FAQ on this site, so I was having trouble understanding the motives here.
I appreciate the people who answered my questions, and everybody else who didn't thumbs down me!
