It does happen and notice it more and more. I have a good idea why but I will keep the majority of my thoughts to myself. It is mind boggling that the same deal posted by two different people at a different time can have various results..Thus you could say some favoritism plays part...I always try to look at this site as money in my pocket not a contest to see who has the best score or so many friends. Each deal is unique to us all one way or another. Give credit where credit is due, not promised or you feel obligated in fear your deals won't be plussed. I say this with the chance of many thumbs down and all of that childish stuff. It is my opinion just being honest, I have been very stingy with my pluses as of late very few even come my way anymore either..Not sure what has happened to this site???? Like I said mind boggling! Good luck CARPEDIUM. You have had some great deals!

I've flagged situations like these in the past, and days later the duplicate is standing strong. I feel your frustration.
I also don't understand the point of being stingy with plusses. I get unlimited plusses in a day, and if someone else's deal gets traffic, that doesn't take any money away from me. It seems that people are so caught up with making money on their deals, that they don't look at anyone else's. Hey, if we all look at (and plus? even though that doesn't add anything to the MM acct) then we all make more!

I know what you mean. I've been on both sides and believe it is all about timing. It is a little frustrating and sometimes it gets flagged and taken off and sometimes it doesn't. I try to stay positive about it. Not worth getting stressed about it. Hopefully you'll be on the other end more often and get massive hits.
