Use this to discuss DDMS posts/deals, so you can avoid the minefield that is the DDMS comment section.

great idea. Although many of the deals on the main site already have active threads discussing them.

+1
I think the consensus last time was that if there's a DDMS deal that needs discussing, we should open a thread for that deal. (Sometimes deals start in DDF, so there's already a thread to talk about them.)
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

I assume this thread is actual discussion not just mocking stupid people ;) which we in enjoy there.

Is discussing resell value of deals taboo?

Discussion only starts once it's dead. Till then, everyone's busy.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

After an FR, a few months ago and thought that the Delta deal would work, however they get notified that card is cancelled.
So my question is anyone with data how long after a cancelled card would it take for them to find out ? Instant ?

This is one odd thread. Why not make a DDF thread if there's a deal worth talking about?
Last I checked we don't charge extra to open threads, though it's not a bad idea to monetize this place...
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I thought monetization happens as a feeding ground for deals

If monetization is good then more monetization is better. Who's ready for pop-ups :)
