Some discussion on a deal here http://www.buxr.com/deal/free-.....ple_116748 that I started replying to, and thought it better here as a discussion than buried in the deals.
Saying this is best posted as discussion topic bothers me because I've seen us encouraged to post freebies as deals by Yan when we know all the details, which was the case with this deal. I don't understand why it just wasn't flagged as low value. It is certainly not the worst deal I've seen lately... One even made Best Deal of the Day before Yan flagged as low value! ...
You make a good point, Sandyshore. Yes, it could have been flagged as low value and killed; I did not think of that option when I negged it.
Going forward as a community, we can decide how we should treat these. At first glance, I like the idea of codifying these as discussion topics rather than deal items, and with the marker Race to the Freebies. For anyone who enjoys chasing these deals, they are conveniently grouped in one area and searchable. For anyone who prefers their freebies unlimited by time and luck, they do not get grouped in with Freebie Deals.
