That irks me to no end seeing these postings while my and other real deals get lost because of them!
Posting DEALS is what DP is all about.
Maybe if the "offenders" start getting "reminders" and warnings they'll actually start looking for deals as is outlined above.

Youre fighting a losing battle man. Ive been saying this since this money makers thing started. People dont care if its a sale or retail price. Its all about posting as much as you can to make money. Take a look at the front page of deals, the "hot deals". Now sort deals by plusses, how many of those top plussed deals are on the front page? Mods need to keep their hands off the deals and let the community decide what is hot and what is not. If they want a special page for their friends deals or for deals they think are great then simply add a new page called Mods choices or something. This site is going like the US government, the users are losing more and more control day by day.

I agree with u, but in reality, policing the site is the mods job. They can do a much better job deleting posts that aren't even deals.
If someone posted crappy deals often and they were continually deleted, I don't think they'd continue to post them.
All we can do is if you see a post and you're able to find a better price, post the link to their deal, telling them it's not the best price.
Additionally, like @Acidbaby said, the site would be much better if the mods didn't control what deals do/don't make FP.
