    Seems like some newbies trying to 1p items don't quite understand how it works. IMHO, I don't think 1p items should be put in the newsletter. There has been an influx of new posters coming to this thread and talking about querying the price with Ts. I can see the them getting fed up and making sure this doesn't happen anymore. Good advice from the poster above. I can't believe a poster a few posts back showed the MSE website. They must have come across the only polite T in the country!

    that's just out and out greed and TBH I don't think MSE is doing itself any favours by boasting about this and condoning such greedy behaviour.

    Shoot me down in flames if you like but that is just my opinion.

    thoroughly agree with rebeccaj on this. MoneySavingExpert, yes, but this is just a display by a greedy grabbing look out only for number 1, never mind anyone else individual and not what I thought this site was about. :(

    By applauding and publicising this type of behaviour you are condoning it and thereby cheapening what your site is about. A very sad day.

    :eek: nobody needs that much chocolate. Pure greed. How many other people has he/she deprived of getting a bargain by doing this. Unbelievable :mad:

  • They say they have given it away, I hope they have. I know of another person on MSE who claims they have disabling illnesses and car boot it to make a living. Personally I got 4 boxes of black magic and gave 3 to a lady who helps with an oap group charity, and one the OH took to work. I wanted more to give to her an have been looking but failed. I wouldn't have the nerve to take more than half a dozen.

    So yes I'm a little jealous of the person that got so many but at the end of the day it's first come first served. It's more those making a scene about it that concern me. I feel anyone quietly buying 100 through self scan on several shops is less damaging to the persuit of glitches than those buying 2 asking for a price check and/or insisting on a price match to an MSE list. Just my opinion.
    If I had a pound for every pound I'd lost, I'd be confused

    I hope flyingflea was kind and gave most of it away as otherwise that's a few stones there ;)

    There is absolutely no jealousy involved whatsoever, I don't even eat chocolate. I am just horrified at a display of such greed.

    What I also find distasteful is MSE condoning such avarice by publicising it in this manner and, no matter how much the greedy person tries to justify their actions to themself or the wider audience by saying they are giving it away, it is still avarice.

    Avarice : noun : insatiable or extreme greed, inordinate, miserly desire to gain.

    Greed: noun : excessive desire to acquire or possess more (especially more material wealth) than one needs.

    rebeccaj has a point and I agree with her.

    In fact look how many people have thanked her post (so obviously agree too) and how many have thanked yours (zero)

    It's one of the seven deadly sins is greed. Further down the road people who display such a trait may regret doing so as what goes around often comes around.
