Kindle Clutter in the Deals Forum
When you open the Deals, Freebies & Resources forum, the page is overwhelmingly full of Kindle deals.
I don't begrudge Kindle users those deals; in fact, I think they're a very nice thing. I bet people take advantage of them all the time and it makes a big difference to them. Still, I don't love having to wade through all of those to see which ones apply for other readers.
How much trouble would it be to create a sub-forum JUST for the Kindle-only deals? Then those who have Kindles can spot them immediately and disregard stuff that doesn't apply to them, and those of us using other readers and not wanting to mess with stripping DRM & converting don't have to look at them.

A good portion of the Kindle freebies and deals are actually applicable to several stores (generally any thread for a freebie with at least 1 reply will usually have someone saying that the book is also free @ B&N/Sony/etc.).
Unfortunately sometimes the thread titles don't get updated to reflect this.
