Is It Good Manners Commenting on a Post Just to Earn Points ?

Ask a Question

We all need gift cards ( we do don't we ? ) but is it fair to write any old nonsense ? 🤔

I have said it before, but I think the chat section has got out of hand for nonsense posts with peeps just posting anything in a vain attempt to get points. No disrespect but this post is a case in point!

I do really think this Chat section should be kept to a few quality posts and the rest removed. I also think that points for commenting should be taken away. I do not think it is really needed now. The site would be much better for removing it. I feel this section damages the brand.

Unfortunately the Moderators do not have the admin rights to manage this section. Otherwise I would be removing some of the daft topics.

As Tom mentions, there are now systems in place to pick up duplicate, spam and offensive posts which is great.

The things people pop on this section goes right over my head most days. I just ignore it.

Thank you for your Chat post. When we first launched points we did so as a way to give back to the community. For everyone to be rewarded for helping. Commenting is a particularly tricky thing to monitor, for we want to encourage and reward constructive comments, and sometimes that includes genuine praise and adoration for a deal.

There are some systems in place to monitor for comment spam - people saying the same thing every single time, and we do restrict commenting ability on those found to be abusing our comments system for points.
