I think is a good deal

rated:
I'm on the Longhorn email list and didn't get my coupon for a free dessert this year (birthday was last week). Have they stopped doing this? Also the IHOP freebie is no longer a Rooty Tooty Fresh and Fruity. It's just a stack of fruit covered pancakes, now called Rooty Tooty Fresh and Fruity Pancakes.

  I recently got a b-day email, and it looks the same to me as in the past. It says: Free Rooty Tooty Fresh 'N Fruity (or menu item of equal or lesser value).

  I think too many spammers/morons/doofuses keep making useless posts to this thread.

  For IHOP, when did you get receive you b-day e-mail. I though they still give you a free meal with Rooty Tooty Fresh and Fruity for your birthday. They did away with that for the initial sign up.

Yeah, that is clear.  I've complained to the mods about it in the past year, but they don't take those posts down.  I've even reported the posts individually, but no dice.

I have a feeling that somewhere they advertise this thread -- on Faceberk or something -- when they are trying to entice people to sign up for the first time and make their virgin post -- maybe they get entered into a contest or something.

  Yes is has changed for the pancake stack but its valued @ $8.29 and you can substitute it for anything or pay the difference if its more.

simply stating the name of a restaurant without any further information is not very useful in a thread like this.  did the poster mean that they give free birthday meals?

Offers vary by location but apparently can include a free meal on your birthday with the purchase of another meal.

  Please tell me why this thread has the highest concentration of inane posts from new users who never seem to show up on FW again. And why alanmax and sloppy gave you red, that is ridiculous (considering they didn't red the useless newbie posts as well).

Actually, I do tend to think it is from people who do a google search of restaurant + birthday or similar who then come here and make a post as some sort of placeholder. At least that's what I kind of hope is the case, because that is the only thing that makes any sense. That said, I'll keep redding every one of them, as they are still useless and clog up the thread. If the dumb newbies would do any research, they'd find there are much better ways to bookmark or tag a thread. A while back, I noticed the mods did do a sweep and delete a bunch of the crud posts, but it doesn't take long for it to fill up again.

Yoregano, it's been speculated about before (in this thread, and in a Fatwallet forum thread which I think we both participated in), but I think the reason is what I wrote the other day on a different thread:

"I think that in the FW social media efforts, people are encouraged to sign up and make a post anywhere on the site in order to be entered into a drawing or something.
I assume this is the reason for posts such as "I like free food" and "my birthday is in July" in the birthday freebies thread."
http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/travel-discussion/1402980/m18791...

Since this thread gets more inane comments from newcomers of any FW thread I have seen, maybe this thread might be an "example thread" that FW lists on an internet site or "app" from which they are trying to recruit new sign-ups, or something like that.

I have stopped complaining about meaningless posts because it doesn't do any good. It's a shame that silly posts can stay up, because it degrades the worth of (and legitimate participation in) what can be, to many readers, an informative, money-saving thread.

Why don't you look again who gave who red before you voice your opinion yet again. I also gave you red as you are pretty free with your reds as I am more selective.

  I readily admitted that I am giving out lots of red where I think I see fit. Your posts are included as well. I often find your "selection" to be rather inconsistent and speculative.

Some pots calling the kettle black going on here...

 I think you have an interesting Theory here. I was mostly speaking tongue-in-cheek. The fact, though, that FW did delete a bunch of these useless one-time posts some months back makes one wonder, though. That suggests that your idea may not be the case.

  and your posts which many times are just your personal opinion would be classified even below what you classify mine as. I really don't give a rat's a$z what you red or seldom green. If you don't like or approve of my posts then you should have placed me on ignore long ago. Please do now and spare me your condescending attitude. 
Not going to argue with you as I have seen you do that countless times with others.
I still see you have not admitted to being incorrect.
Have a pleasant evening.

Or, it might suggest that whichever prize drawing those people may have been entered in had finally taken place, and FW could clear the decks. 

But, who knows. 

-----
Maybe it's a drop box for spies, arranged between FW and the powers that be, and these meaningless posts are actually top-secret messages in code, so they can't be deleted.

Perhaps there is tremendous meaning in the delicately-altered punctuation and capitalization of:
"Please ,thank YOU"

It's like that code written in stick men characters in Sherlock Holmes, except these messages are not marked out with chalk at a stately home in 19th Century England, but are being spewed out of the chaotic vortex centered around the Beloit IT industry.

...maybe being thorns in FW's side about this issue could be dangerous for you and me!
