These CAGs Drive Me Nuts

I'm not trying to start up a pro/anti-flipping debate, though if one gets started I don't really care because at least it will be going on here instead of in one of the threads.

I'm usually against flipping when the game is in high demand, because I don't think making $6 in Best Buy credit is worth making someone else miss out on a game they want to play. I don't care as much about flipping games that aren't in very high demand (usually casual games like Kinect or Wii games that Amazon/Best Buy is paying too much for) because generally nobody who actually wants to play the game is missing out.

But what drives me crazy is when these flippers repeatedly post in threads about their flips. If you flipped a game and made a few bucks, good for you, enjoy your money, but please don't feel like you need to tell everyone on CAG about it. Or if you just absolutely must share your flips, please take it to the bragging thread.

I was sure this was going to say TMK. How can I stop seeing his blogs on the front page?! Someone save my sanity!
I actually like TMK blogs. They are usualy interesting reads and make CAG fun(ny), imo.

We already got rid of several interesting CAGs (Firethief, Chuplayer) because a few CAGs got their panties in a bunch.

Use that ignore button if you have to, please don't be that guy who complains over the internet about petty shit.

To stay on topic, I think with deal sites like CAG and slickdeals we can all identify with the community. Everyone is trying to get the best deal possible and can appreciate when a good deal is found.

Now with flippers who feel the need to constantly brag on the internet... they are probably trying to fill some holes in their real life.
I like TMK too.
Agree with above. People should be allowed to blog if they want. Don't wanna read it, then ignore the user.
It annoys me to see people bragging about flipping/hoarding (seems to be ok on SD but I had hoped CAG was above that... guess not), but it's more fun to watch people get worked up about it and start posting really stupid stuff.
