People tend to forget this site is more than just deal alert hub. If you want that, you could use a great many different sites that work to that effect, like CheapShark, IsThereAnyDeal, etc. Or you could opt for more deal focused forums like SlickDeals, SPUF, Reddit, etc. CAG is a community beyond that, where people communicate, make friends, play games together, etc.
For those who enjoy this, cool. For those who don't, the OPs are usually updated very quickly and give you a full list of what's on sale on the retailer that the thread is for (Steam, Amazon, etc). Complaining about people for talking with each other is asinine.
Way to show that you think that you're worth more than a few people.
Obviously not what he was saying. The guy he was responding to had the logic of "If some people on a site don't like you, you shouldn't want to be there." He was just replying with an equally ridiculous line of reasoning.
