I suggest you don't share the codes openly. Just send them to the first guy who IM's you.
Lots of lurkers are taking advantage of this thread. Just my .02 What is the difference if a "lurker" uses the code or if the first "lurker" to IM me uses it? Lurker only takes, and wasting others' time trying codes that's already been used.
imho, PM stings for the poster: who'll need to first post, and then at the very least respond to the first PM, and then post again when the code is used (to prevent being PM'd further). Also stings for the other side of the coin, you'll have to first PM and then wait to hear back from poster if you "win".
In an ideal world, a poster posts a code, whoever used the code post a reply. Everyone will be happy. But obviously that's too much to ask for these days.
Mulox said: Because there is nothing more annoying than trying to use a code only to find its already been used without the courtesy of letting others know. I suppose that would be annoying. Though I see why someone would not want to hold onto the code until someone sends them a message. Easier for the provider of the code to simply post it and forget it. I suppose this is why it happens and will continue to happen. Those people willing to put up with the annoyance of the codes potentially not working will eventually get one that does work while the rest of us could stick with the IM'd codes or our own codes.
