What is a duplicate post on deals.woot?
I know I've said this before, but I can't find it now. Finding and deleting duplicate deals are great, when we're talking about things that are relatively recent. There's always a race (or it seems so) to post the newest whatchamacallit from Meritline, for example. I'm never surprised to see duplicates on those. It's frustrating, albeit in an academic sense, because I just don't post that many deals, and I've never been hit with a delete on duplicate for myself.
Why is it frustrating? Because the current rules are, no matter how long ago the deal was posted, if it already exists on the site, and someone posts it again, Whammo! it's gone. Sure, anyone who's determined can do a search, and find it, and take advantage of it, but most people that visit the site looking for deals don't seem to wander too far afield from the Popular page.
I'd still like to see an analog to RIP, where deals could be retired after three months.
