which info are you referring to?

{edit} never mind I found it. For the same reason people assume I am a guy. First this is a heavily trafficked site for tech stuff and men tend to dominate that industry.

and Meh I wouldn't worry about it. Some people just say stuff because they like to push buttons. I sort of liked your deal. Men need to worry about VPL too because it is tacky.

some ignoramus trying to call me out on a deal I posted just because they don't like it.

@hanar: It happens a lot. When my deals go popular is when all the whiners come out of the woodwork to tell me what a horrible deal it is, how tacky it might be, or some other nasty snotty comment that comes to their mind. just ignore them. But it is nice to know that there is another girl here.

@hobbit: Thanks. I guess some people aren't happy unless they're complaining. Will have to try and ignore them.

Ignore the trolls that visit this site and post their nasty comments. I understand defending your deal or answering questions on a deal but when it's a personal attack, just remember that they probably know nothing about you and are just looking for a flame war.

Keep posting, my boys got a laugh out of your deal (if it is the one I am thinking of).

@theoneill555: Thanks...I've been a member of woot for a while, but just recently started posting to this site. For the most part, great community of people :)

@hanar: Most of us are. But it seems that there are quite a few trolls on the deals side who just can't help themselves when it comes to commenting on items. They will make snide comments on anything just to have a comment on a deal. For me when my mail box starts filling up with that stuff, it is the signal that my deal went from fresh to popular. Ha ha.

@hanar: I thought you handled it very well!

a funny joke or two is ok, but you have people who tend to reply to everything with either the same saying or a personal attack they should be dealt with.

ahhh the idiots of the world LOL Ignore them-
Its hard to I know, been there done that on so many websites-from Couponing to dog sites to Tupperware sites if you post anything people will love ya or hate you or just want to be heard-You be the bigger person and refuse to engage them because that is what they want-Most Idiots LIVE on these black boxes called computers and are needy and feel they must cause these arguments(I live on the puter but am somewhat normal-ok well we will discuss that at a later time)-Some I know have no lives by the kind of posting they do and how fast they reply to posts to cause trouble-

Chin up all good wooters Unite for Better days,Better deals and Better Postings!

Plus many of these complainers and trolls just enjoy hearing the tap tap tap of their own keyboard and seeing their name in 'print'. One forum I moderate we routinely delete aged out comments and threads and Man you would think we had committed murder, because a member's comment has gone down. When really people should be looking at longevity NOT how much someone talks.

All I have to say is... Haters gotta hate.

Ignore 'em! It makes them even more angry and if you do it enough their heads might pop of their own accord. :)

I don't know if you know this, but this world is full of really intelligent people. Wait... that's not right, is it?

@hobbit: "But it is nice to know that there is another girl here." And another one.

vote-for3vote-against

@hobbit: and another one...girl that is :)

There are a few very negative posters out there. I got a negative post on one of my deals and thought maybe I was just reading tone, but looked up that members comments on deals and every one was negative...some people are just wired that way.
