    Are you trying to get banned? It's been well publicised here that the link is not meant to be made public.

    If I were you I'd delete it yourself before you get into trouble with the mods.

    i don't see why you choose to abuse the forums and not delete your post. if anyone desperately wanted the link they can find it themselves by other means easily enough, eg searching for 1.50 off in google

    I'm with Gorshin on this.

    CD Wow have said they dont like it, but its no illegal to post a link to a discount. What gives them the right to dictate what goes on our forums.

    There is alot of things I dont like but have to tolerate.

    I found the link by searching on google, but respect to Gorshin for posting.

    I posted a thread when it was allowed and it got 1000's of views and no doubt CD WOW hundreds of sales.

    Lets get everyone discounted-up :clap:

    Whats the harm in that? :lesson:

    And besides, all members will appreciate it. Who cares about what the moderators think,and cdwow for that matter. :boring:

    All that matters is that people get cheaper dvds. :smashin:

    Not a very enlightened attitude...

    The harm comes when cd-wow stop doing their discounts because they have been so openly abused... all members will not appreciate that! :lesson:

    Whats the point of a discount if nobody can find the link. If every site took this atitude we wouldnt find the discounts anyway. Its like its OK to go to a message board or news group that upsets CD-WOW but not here almost a 'not in my back yard" atitude.

    Do you know, i wouldn't mind so much about the link being up as it has...sorry 'had' been here for months. I happen to think that all this free advertising has helped CDWOW to become as succesful as they are.
    The problem is the egotistical idiots who have to show everyone how clever they are by boasting about the great deal they got by using double vouchers etc. No-one cares! We all know how to use the links/vouchers and we all choose whether to use it wisely or abuse it. I personally however do not care if some cleverdick got a dvd for £1.49 etc...so what?
    Why do people feel the need to tell all and sundry about it? It really isn't that interesting. Now someone who has genuinely found a damn good bargain should feel a little smug as they share it with the forum but someone who has just typed in a few voucher numbers...should not!

    As for caring what the mods think, they have been asked to prevent posting of the link by CDWOW. I would assume that if this stupidity continues then CDWOW will lose the sponsorship deals they have and stop doing the links.

    Pardon my ignorance (well, I am over 40), but I don't understand why CD-Wow put up these discount pages and then appear to wish to stop people accessing them.

    What am I missing here? :confused:

    Those discount links are not for the general public - they are promotional discounts designed for use by certain company employees only...

    The problem is that the links get abused. They are meant for affiliate sites as a sponsorship link but i'm sure CDWOW don't mind them being used by all as the cost goes to their sponsors anyway. Many people often combine this with a discount voucher too, which is fair enough. Unfortunately though some people are not happy to save £1.50-£2.50 so they use a second voucher or leave the page open and re-use the firat one agin. No-one covers this cost and so CDWOW inevitably lose money.
