Should there be a "3 strikes and you're out" rule for vendor posts?
Well, not that stringent, of course, but should there be some sort of ban on vendors who post deals that just don't get supported here?
I've been watching a software seller who has posted 63 deals since May 3, generally one per day. His total aggregate votes are -2. Yes, negative-2 on 63 deals. So I looked deeper. Virtually all his deals get at least 50 views; perhaps half of them get 100+ views. Most of them get a handful of clicks; some of them get 20+ clicks. In other words, Wootizens are interested enough at least view the deal, and then they aren't interested.
This guy isn't spamming us, and he doesn't dump a lot of deals at a time. There's no way to determine if any sales actually result from his postings, but the overall lack of community support seems pretty evident.
I'm raising the question only as a curiosity point, not as an advocate for a change of policy.
