Yes.
But  as puddles said,  he's just a worker. I don't call up the store owner or the bus company and thank them for proving me with bussing.
If you stepped off the bus and the bus company owner was standing there you wouldn't say thank you?

I don't disagree that this is a business as much as any other. And the whole site is built with that business on mind. As are the DDS's, etc. That doesn't preclude me from saying thank you
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

I like having a hobby that makes me money; points that I can use to fly myself and my family where we want to go for little or cost.  I like seeing things on sale that I can get a good buy on - even things I don't really need.  I even like seeing things on the site I don't want to buy, so I know I'm not like Pavlov's dog that has to buy everything Dan tells us about.
I like the site.  I support the site by using his cc links and others.
I like DDF.  It gives me entertainment and an on-line 'community'.


So I appreciate that Dan makes a living this way or I wouldn't have those things.
Thanks, Dan.  Ksiva v'chasima tova.

-1  I absolutely would if he were an outstanding driver and I wanted to let the owner know he's not just doing his job, he's going over and beyond!

When one gives tzedaka one fulfills the mitzvah, but doing it with a smile fulfills the mitzvah of b'simcha.  Dan does his money making job b'simcha and we feel it and benefit from it.  Why shouldn't I have hakaros hatoiv?!  Please! 

Just because HaShem does His job of making me breathe, walk, eat, etc. on a daily basis...that means I don't have to thank Him??!  It's a good thing we are entering aseres yomei tshuva soon.   p.s.  TY, again, Dan.  I've made some really good connections/friends because of your forum.

Perhaps, but srap's point still stands. I'm in complete agreement.

When you get off the bus you thank the driver. When someone does you a service, even if you are paying them, you still owe them thanks.

Kal V'Chomer someone like Dan who goes above and beyond and has helped all of us so much.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Thank you Dan and all of your followers that took the time to help me. Dan, you opened my eyes to the big world that's out there ready for the taking and i really appreciate it.

every one of you that i pm'd with were/are also a huge help. you deserve credit as well.

as for the links- i don't have the patience to constantly search for the websites so i made bookmarks for the ones i use the most (amazon, zappos, gap, etc.)


and whomever it was that compared thanking Dan to thanking Hashem- way out of line, dude...
My greatest achievement? I am fluent in FRIENDS quotes

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Forum policy discussion can be done via PM. But odds are better than not that if every other deals forums has the same rules than it'll be the same here.
