A hat tip has the same value as 20 posts

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

I think they make a great contribution to the forums. What we need is a dislike button and for more people to use the like button in the deals board, so threads can be deleted easier if it's not good. And maybe another board for when deals die.

But in general I think your comment is way off and the amount of good deals produced by DDF has gone up exponentially since they started contributing.

Sure some posts can use a bit more discretion and looking into, but that's where a thumbs down and thumbs up feature people actually used would be helpful. No need to throw the baby out with the bath water.

You are supposed to like it. They do a lot of the work for you.
Once upon a time, deals posted were good deals and the crap stayed on SD.

Really? When?

There was never as many good deals as there are now, it is harder to find them though as the amount of deals posted has also gone up, hence a need to more likes and dislikes, not to have the deals go away.

Sometimes people post things that clearly sent worth it. But at the end of the day, the whole miles game is not nearly as lucrative as previous years and if they didn't post anything this place would be dead.
And they keep the site alive because that's where the $$$ comes from.
