    Selling your soul to the devil 4th Aug 16 at 8:46 PM
    I've noticed over the last few months that comments on Facebook competitions seems to be getting quite intense. What I mean is the sob stories. e.g. Comment to win a toilet roll, I have only got six months to live and I've never won anything, thanks this awesome prize so generous of you and good luck everybody. Let's not forget the photos and the emojis.

    On a serious note does any of these comments make a difference in whether you win or not???

    Found them! Over on 'pure collection' FB for a jumper, usual format and someone earlier suggested both accounts were the same people, I think your right. There is a new account commenting on comp posts now, using their surname as a first name! Judging by the format of wording all three accounts are the same person/s. Brazenly breaking most comping rules and not in the spirit of things.

    I hope it's picked up on, 'cos it's a blatant attempt to win. PAH!!

    Did someone say something deemed offensive/inappropriate/unPC/daft/something rather sensible?

    I love those comps, you can just say "blah blah blah" and they have to give you the prize when you win! Nice to come up with something more inventive, too, like "If I win the camera I'll take it with me on my next trip to the moon"... but no begging!
