I am guilty of doing it. It is out of frustration. My deal hit 76 and never made it to the front page. Yet many luke warm posts that hit front page and stay front page at 15 plusses.
This one hit 54 and never made front page https://www.dealsplus.com/Audio-Video_deals/p_itunes-card-for-deal-of-the-day-saveology

I personally don't mind if someone does it because it is often a really awesome deal and often time sensitive. It does bother me, however, when someone posts a dup on ask and share without making a real effort to check because that takes away from the op's hits.

Some deals are not sales, it could be a event. Is there a difference between a event or sale? Also, someone may have posted it as a sale, but another person may not have seen it yet, and thought it'd be nice to share it.
I only did this once, and after I noticed that someone had posted it as a deal.
For instance, if a store is having a SALE event, that could be posted as a deal or it could be something someone wants to share.
Personally, I think that if someone wants to post a store's SALE event, instead of just one particular item- it should be in the ASK & SHARE section... That is what it is there for... to share.
If some place is having a once in a lifetime event or sale, it's nice to SHARE it with everyone.

Sometimes they end up posted here because they are not accepted when trying to post as a regular deal,as an example I get messages that the site isn't found in DP store list.
If it's a deal I think people should know about and can benefit from I will post it in ask and share,I did have an instance where that happened and then after I posted it in ask and share it turned up in the regular deals posts too.
I guess I should have waited but most of the time my deals don't ever show up when I get that message.
