Does this site care about unethical retailers/merchants approaching users and offering them $ to post here?

Yes we do care, we fight it daily.
Members get warnings and/or lose their accounts and merchants get punished up to and including being URL blocked when we have proof of such activities.

We are community driven and we want the best deals here, not just whatever someone is willing to post because a merchant threw them $ to post it or to make a post in the thread to comment it up.

Sometimes a newer merchant makes the mistake of trying a shortcut and finds it backfires on them.

It's much better if they'd take an honest look at their product and offer it for a good price and let it get here the right way, let our members vote honestly on it and if it merits making popular deals or FP they will get tons of attention for their store/site/product.

If someone does get asked to post or vote on a product we do appreciate them forwarding that information to

If it happens via PM please mod alert that.
