@falcondeal: It's not as if I'm unaware that this is a frequent glitch, but there may be others here who don't know it happens. I'm sorry you were forced to take time to read and comment on information you didn't need.

Perhaps this link would be more helpful to you:

Seriously, though, why even bother posting? You think maybe staff haven't noticed?

I appreciate the post magic. Always nice to know I'm not the only one seeing this happen.

Perhaps falcon ran out of his medication this weekend...or his team lost.

Bollocks

Not trying to be a grammar nazi, just a little friendly enlightenment.

edit: After a little reading, it would seem that "bollix" isn't entirely unacceptable. That's bollocks.

@magic cave: Congrats, you found one of my questions I asked! You should have found it before your post, rather than after posting the same question 20+ people have posted before.

@kamikazeken: Glad to see someone else hates seeing the same questions asked over and over!

I will also chime in on the fact there is a search feature available. I know I asked about companies that posted their own deals first and 4 others followed suit to get their rep up. Small annoyances that deserve 2 minutes to type a comment to annoy them as much as they annoy me. +1 to others who downvoted this and posted a comment as well!

@rprebel: "Bollix" is actually totally acceptable, since it's a completely different word with a completely different meaning. "Bollix" means what I meant to convey:

bollix v : make a mess of, destroy or ruin; "I botched the dinner and we had to eat out"; "the pianist screwed up the difficult passage in the second movement" [syn: botch, bumble, fumble, botch up, muff, blow, flub, screw up, ball up, spoil, muck up, bungle, fluff, bollix up, bollocks, bollocks up, bobble, mishandle, louse up, foul up, mess up, f*ck up]

Had I meant "bollocks," which is generally understood to be a vulgarity meaning claptrap, trash, or nonsense, I would have written that word.

I am reminded of an instance a few years ago in which a writer was severely castigated for using the word "niggardly" in an article. Evidently his superior (and others) thought it was a racist slur, merely because it sounded as if it were another word.

And you kids get off my lawn!

@falcondeal: Using your rationale, it would be inappropriate to ask if folks remembered to change their clocks ahead an hour for daylight savings time, since the same question has been asked in the past.

At any rate, this particular horse seems dead.

@magic cave: Thanks for that link! I loved the "alternate spelling" section. I've wondered where "pillock" came from, but never bothered looking it up.

Thanks for the clarification, too. My apologies.

@rprebel: [oh lordy, DST has struck again... :::yawn:::]

Regarding apologies, please accept mine. I didn't intend to get quite so involved in the fine points of arcane words and their meanings.
