Look, it's Cheapy's forum and it's (generally) a great community. If I were him I would actually delete more of the random stuff that gets thrown up in the Video Game Deals forum.
But (and I'm not talking about anybody specific), I'm not sure how it is helpful to post irrelevant/insulting comments in this type of post. It's not like this is some random person selling his xbox or an obvious spammer selling WOW gold. For all we know Cheapy has approved of Viva letting us know about deals (even if this is not exactly how he wanted it done).
I do think it's useful to have some community self-policing, but only if it's in really obvious situations. Otherwise it seems better to leave it up to the mods and let them pull things.
Just my .02, and my last post, I don't feel very strongly about this - I just want to throw it out there.
