Deals of the undead? Or, could we please exercise more care when RIP-ing deals?
Two days ago, I posted some cufflinks (http://deals.woot.com/deals/details/ea72d1e6-5981-4e97-ac89-246369e674ca/metal-cufflinks-starfleet-badge-shape#10). They quickly went popular, and for good reason. Yesterday, I noticed that it had been RIPed. Odd, Meritline deals without coupon codes usually run at least 2 days. So I clicked on it; still good. Tattled for reactivation. No dice. Tattled again last night; still no change. Go ahead and check-- still good as of 14:15 EDT on 5/25.
What's up? Is the tattle system eating entries? Maybe I hit cancel instead of submit the first time, but absolutely not the second time. Or are the mods overworked? I know I've been tattling a lot on expired deals (note to self: bug @shawnmiller about expiration dates on deals), maybe others are doing the same? And our East Asian friends have been active with comment SPAM.
Either way, could we exercise a bit more care when RIPing deals? That applies equally to staff and tattlers.
