You do understand that link is just going to be an error for most folks, right?

@shrdlu: head:desk Apologies to those who cannot see snapster's answers. Suffice to say, he has recently answered a question. He's doing well. Perhaps he'll respond to this open question. So sorry. Still maintain it's the Hotel California. ;-)

@flounder was able to post w/o a black triangle. Why is it I am so easily confused? Do you have to have quotation marks around the q? Or not? That question did not have quotes, then it did & now it doesn't. I think inky changed it back & forth.

Regardless...snapster is still around. I, for one, find that strangely comforting.

Aha! Some kind mod has placed a q tag on this question. Unfortunately those who are not black triangles won't see it. (I think) I kinda wanted to let everyone know that @snapster had been around.

Not complaining....just think everyone would like to know. Whether or not they could read what he said.

@gmwhit: ha - now we get to enjoy the fact that some people will just think you are going crazy. seeing ghosts and posting incoherent dead links. :-o

vote-for7vote-against

@snapster: Oh, dear. I do believe they think that anyway. And it may be well founded. Would it be too much to ask if you would respond to an open question? For instance - the Panty-less question might appeal to you. Maybe. I don't know that for a fact. :-/

I... ummmm. How about the credit for expiring your own deals question? Any one would be great....so that the masses (you know, the fawning admiring masses) could see that you're still around. Or not to all of the above.

I just realized I have a black triangle.
Now I need to work on getting the black square so I can be better than everyone else.

@gmwhit: Ah, my dear. I tattled on this question immediately after I responded to it, with a request to either add the tag, or remove your link. They chose the former, which is fine with me. As to Flounder posting on that question, you will note that I said (as the Flounder) that changing the tag from Q to "Q" made it accessible to all, albeit not automatically visible.

Personally, I would just as soon see the Q questions open up to everyone, and no longer be invisible. Most of what it was originally used for is long over, and while it was amusing at the time, the world was so much smaller (there were around 100-150 people, tops, that could even see it, and perhaps 50 or so that interacted in any meaningful way). I think the advanced search was the most meaningful thing to come out of it, and the only reason I make any effort to keep a black triangle is to play with my favorite toy, the fancy reputation thing.

I went ahead and took the q off so others could participate in the thread.

@j5: You are a little behind, assuming that you are serious. There are several of us that are double-black. We aren't proud of it though....we just don't have real lives. ;)

@jsimsace:
I don't buy a lot.
I've been here since 2k5
I really don't buy a lot, and only recently started hanging out in deals, since shirt has gotten so boring lately.

@thunderthighs: I forgive you for any number of things. In fact, just in case you don't really need forgiveness, I forgive you for future potential sins as well. Thank you very much for sending this out into the world, so that everyone can participate.

XXOO

[Edit] I also see you fixed the other one, too. ;-}

i saw @snapster at my local walmart. with one hand he was holding up a car that was about to fall on a crying baby with the mom yelling "my baby! someone save my baaby!". in the other hand he was updating his facebook status on his iPhone

@w00tgurl: I know that's a lie. Snapster doesn't go to WalMart.

@j5: well i also saw him at Target helping clear carts from the handicapped spots and repainting the crosswalk lines. he just finished buying some cheetos and trying the new Pepsi Max. you still don't believe me?

"Yup, he's back without the staff badge. So odd to see; I did a double-take. Somehow it seems wrong. But, I guess he's just one of us now. Well, not really. Not even close. :-|

I firmly believe this is visible proof that deals.woot is, indeed, the Hotel California. "You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave."

@snapster Thank you for letting us know how you're doing. So hoping to hear more from you. Please join in & become a super-active member of this community. Also, keep plugging away - that black triangle IS within your reach."

Kiss-ass.

@stormshadow999: Nice copy job. Kiss-ass? Sorry that's the way you view it. I am neither obsequious or submissive. Nor do I curry any favor from snapster. He has none to give on woot, btw. I respect the man & admire his accomplishments. I miss his presence here. That's all.

vote-for6vote-against

@w00tgurl: yeah, I can believe that, just not that he shops at Walmart.

@jsimsace: heyyyy! I don't buy a lot of stuff from woot. It just looks that way. I can walk away anytime I feel like it. Not addicted in the least. Just because I bought a ladder and then a pressure washer...Nope. I'm not addicted to woot! Not at all.

Oh my, just checked my triangle -WOW what a drop in number. No wonder I got the error message. That shows ya, can't be complacent.
