Please kill the hovering top bar, or at least make it autohidable/disableable, esp. on mobile

I notice the mobile site has just adopted the hovering top bar from the desktop site's redesign. Unfortunately, that is the one thing I can't stand about the recent redesigns.

The hovering bar:
- Wastes precious vertical space on widescreens
- Wastes precious space in general on smartphones
- Interferes with page-up/down scrolling by blocking a few lines, which the scroll distance doesn't account for

The desktop site has a setting to disable it, but it's buried deep, and only works while logged in. The mobile site has no setting at all.

If completely scrapping the top bar isn't an option, please at least make it autohide, and/or easier to disable, e.g. with a pin/unpin button right on the bar. Thanks for listening.

P.S.: I wrote this post as a guest, and the text was lost after logging in to submit it, even though the login screen specifically said it wouldn't be. Luckily I had it copy-pasted in Notepad just in case.

Thanks for the feedback guys. We're listening. The reason we wanted to stick it is because it would then allow you to navigate more easily throughout Slickdeals without scrolling back to the top of the page. That said, if our community doesn't like it, we may have to rethink. Thanks!

Don't get rid of it just because a few people don't like it. Personally it is one of the few things I like about the redesign. Make it so it can be toggled on or off and everyone will be happy.
