What spam is acceptable? Should it at least be a deal?
Links from deals.woot are great for retailers. We're seeing an increasing number join and post deals under their names. For example, we see good posts from @mpgear and obvious spam from @poolcenter. I'm wondering about the ones that are posting their products without even bothering to make them any sort of a deal. This question was prompted by @Teextile who joined deals last month & has since posted their shirts weekly. $14 + shipping for a shirt, no deals or discounts.
As far as I am concerned it is still link-spamming and therefore shouldn't be allowed. They are benefiting from being on deals even if they don't hit popular. Most retailers active on deals have figured out to add some sort of a coupon code (even if it's not great). Is this acceptable because it is less frequent? Should we respond to posts like these as Spam and report them as such?
