BensBargains.net is a popular bargain hunting website that lists bargains on the internet.[1] Ben bacon started the site in 2000 as a hobby, and developed it into a career.[2] The website lists discounts, coupons, etc from merchants and other deal websites and places them on the site.[3] As of October 2006, it was ranked #3,240 by Alexa,[4] and gets "several million users per month."[2] Ben bacon also started Dealspl.us.[2]

The site is distinguished by a format in which Ben posts all deals, and site visitors leave feedback and comments about each deal, often with a greater emphasis on humor than on baconanalysis. The result can be either informative, hilarious, or juvenile. The amount and quality of user comments declined precipitously in 2007 when a site redesign prohibited postings by unregistered visitors.

Ben needs to do two things:

1. Allow unregistered users to post.
2. Don't allow users to edit their posts. The Ben filter was hilarious.

I think taking away the editing is a good idea.

Forcing registration isn't a bad thing, in my opinion.
