Actually, if there's a vote, yes
. From me anyway.
I liked the old way. If going back to the old way means there are double posts in the Deals forum, that's STILL faster for me to look at than this new way. If you want to declare the Deals forum "No Man's Land" and not spend time cleaning it, that's actually fine with me. A few duplicate titles
to glance at is a small price to pay for... a few duplicate threads
that I have to read all the new posts in to find the deals.
To clarify: the new way is essentially useless to me. The old way, even if it were to get cluttered, wasn't. That's my 2 cents.
EDITED TO ADD: And I notice the duplicate threads are already being spammed with Author Self-Promotions. Which can't be easy for ya'll to find and delete, nested inside the whole thread. Seems like "no man's land" would be easier for both you and me.
