The issue's systemic - it's the same thing that happened to newsgroups in the 90's - trolls come in, do all they can to stir up a storm (it's fun, right?) and the experienced users "plonk" them into their kill files, never to see their postings again - and the newbies just get offended.
Sort of a steady-state, until forums came along, and text discussion groups left usenet in droves. First the newbies, because they were offended, then the "old hands" as, well, even with kill filters, trolls can be a bit irritating - newsgroups are where "sockpuppets" got invented, for instance...

The situation here is a close parallel, only without even kill files, so if another bargain site does appear with similar bargains and the ability to comment (so as to draw in mavens), and a lack of trolls I think the same thing might happen - only likely not "newbies first".

bobkoure, please find another forum to post your lame "self-proclaimed martyr maven opinions on. Your effeminate whining serves no economic purpose on this website. Your actions are costing Ben money, and I cannot stand by and let that happen. *smirk*

If this website was "cleaned up", then no one would come. I mean, come on. Why would anyone look at these crappy deals?
