Why the criticism?

Lately, there seems to be a lot of criticsm of individuals that post a lot of deals and coupons...........and why the mods aren't doing anything about it.  I think that this bashing and criticism takes away from the DP Community as a whole.......making it look like a bunch of little kids whining over who got the biggest piece of cake........What happened to live and let live?

YEA! I haven't been as involved with the site as I once used to be but I do check this site almost daily to read the dramas' in this section. :)

People are serious because money is involved and items posted on the main page are not done by the merit of the deal but hand selected.

Ezzy, I think people, including me, have a problem with members who post may hundreds of deals a day with very few of those actually being deals. Most of what I see on DP is nothing more than the typical price you would expect online. They are not deals at all. Having to wade through that morass of postings detracts from the experience of being here. I think the criticism is well-placed.

I agree with the fact that a lot of the items posted are not deals at all.some people post items with no price cut at all!

I haven' been on in awhile, but, even when I had been more often, it always has been this way!

While I can agree that there is favoritizm, I can also vouch for Ezzy, that she is not a moderator. She's not insane. She's probably the friendliest person on the site and just doesn't like to see the negativity. Nothing wrong with that.

Lemme make sure I understand what you're saying here.

If someone percieves that there is a "good ol' boy network" at play, they can voice that and it isn't "trying to sway everyone opinion in your direction", but if they don't agree, or maybe they do but they don't want to see the site's dirty laundry aired and bickered about than they are "trying to sway everyone opinion in your direction", and not just voicing a counter opinion"? Makes no sense at all.

For the record, I agree that there is definitely some favoritism going on. Your insinuation above was that she was in the inner loop, which she is not. Her posts are almost always 50% off or more and gets some front page posts out of it. The inner circle are the ones who post BS and fill the front page.

So all I'm asking is that you break down your last 4 sentences and apply them to your own post.

I agree with erick99 on this (and with you too Acidbaby. I'm guessing you're one of those people who "hurt others feelings" with your comments and some people thumb you down when you speak your mind)
