I know it's probably a lost cause, but I've become sick of that argument over time, mostly because it's hard to distinguish what "should" be in the thread. My rule of thumb has been the general threads are for ongoing things like clearance and trade-in values, but even then there are exceptions.
If this was in the Blockbuster thread, I'd wager that upwards of 90% of the people who read the forum wouldn't see it, because they don't look at that one thread...because from my experience, Blockbuster usually doesn't run sales like this (and from looking at the Blockbuster thread, it doesn't look like they've done one recently). We don't need threads for every individual deal or sale, but if we're going by the logic that this has to be in the Blockbuster thread just because it's at Blockbuster, then this entire forum should just be a collection of giant threads with one dedicated to every retail store or website.
People are too uptight about where the threads go. Lumping actual deals into general threads just results in decreased visibility, and I'm not sure how that's a good thing.
