  • tightarse — for posting the second most popular deal last month, SanDisk 8GB MicroSD $8.95 from PC Byte. TA ended up being almost like an ambassador for PC Byte, posted the last 5 deals and all of them were pretty popular. TA had also posted 64 other deals last month averaging +125 votes.

Note that the most popular deal last month was actually eBay 20% off Selected Retailers — well deserved and caused OzBargain's front page to be populated by eBay deals on those days. However OP of the deal subsequently tried to remove his/her post and then disabled the account.

      Seems it was brucefromaustralia

        I wonder what happened there. Thanks.

        • +1 vote

          It was a bit strange… He made a lot of comments on the regus "non-deal", … First saying it was great… Then later when the regus deal got pulled, his comments weren't appreciated and he was never seen again.

        •  

          @AznMitch:

          I'm already missing Bruce, he was very helpful in many cases. Without him I wouldn't get 100+ votes in the Ben & Jerry's deal

          Please come back Bruce.

          @Bappy: I actually feel slightly bad about seeing that since I feel like I've started that :S

          @AznMitch:
          Am I the only one who thinks this person is the return of bruce?

          Also don't feel bad, you made one comment that wasn't even directed at him, not your doing at all.

          @yessum:

          Well Bruce lives in Brisbane that's for sure, this profile is based in Sydney

          The timing is very interesting.

          @Oversimplified:
          Wouldn't have read this if not for a welcome back from tonester.
          Made my day thanks, as I don't bother reading the stats :-)

          My departure was due to circumstances outside of OzBargain. To avoid stress dealing with my Father who kept dropping dead on me (now recovering after pacemaker fitted) I became a comment-a-holic. I understood that at the time, but it was a useful distraction for a while.

          Certainly not at all due to you or your valid comment, Oversimplified.
          I was miffed at the OP in that deal [based on my comment (which was based on another deal…)] basically rewriting my proven hack as a deal without any credit. Later added acknowledgement, but I had left by then.

          It's always nice to acknowledge people's contributions to deals & this community in some small way :-)

          After that & criticism in the failed Regus deal (I was mainly having a bit of fun, but humour is lost on those who missed a good deal) I needed a break as I was taking things too personally.

          So thanks for your comments. Gee if I had to say nice things about the people who have helped me on OzBargain, it would be a very long list :-)
