Not really a problem. Updates would appear directly in the op.
I think every one was getting a bit tired of all the off topic bumps which really had nothing todo with the sales themselves. Honestly, I like reading what the op has to post, and not have to read through all the nonsense from everyone else.
If you don't like the new sns format, let the mods know. If you have something specific to raise regarding a sns offering, pm the seller. Couldn't be more obvious thuan that. I find it's a step in the right direction.
