Why is this type of post permitted on slickdeals and why was it posted by a staff member? Don't they realize that it's only going to encourage copy cat posts that add nothing to this place. I'm come here looking for deals and this only gets in the way of trying to do that efficiently.

This place is going downhill rapidly and it's sad your giving it gas as it approaches the edge of the cliff. This is also another example of why I'll be looking for another deal forum.

Hi Smilie

Honestly, I think this time is stressful for everyone so most likely they just posted it to be lighthearted. As you can see, people are having fun in the thread for pages and pages and it's not a bad thing, especially now, to have something lighthearted to take your mind off of all the other things to worry about.


Yes, if hot deals was full of threads like that, or if things like that were posted frequently that would be a problem. However we've allowed them from time to time from staff and from members if we can see that people are enjoying themselves in there.

I'm seeing this type of comment often now. SD had better wake-up and adjust things because sooner or later they are going to see competition once again (like the days of FW).

Autumn, you said it so eloquently. I agree with the site in this.
Humor is a very good thing now and then. This isn't a COVID-19 website. I see lots of lame deals posted. The site is for profit. If they see fit not to be all up in arms about silly posts, that is another good part of this site to me. I admit I try to be silly sometimes. I like making people laugh.

So for those too serious about deals to appreciate any of the wacky stuff, I would advise you to either skip it or go elsewhere. It is not pervasive or ubiquitous.
