DAGG is merging into another site

June 28th, 2006 at 08:09 pm

Wow, I'm a bit surprised. And saddened, not just by the change, but by all the concern members are expressing at that site.

I'm new to trading, I really don't have much experience. But, it's an interesting site, a place to contribute recipes and share the latest hot deal found at a specific supermarket. Or a rare find coupon.

There has been so much concern about personal info being sold to the other company, people wanting all their posts at DAGG deleted. So much so, they had to lock the comment thread after maybe a day.

I don't have any great wisdom or ponderings, just sadness that people feel betrayed. Perhaps relief that I'm not a moderator at THAT site. And mostly a touch of awe, at what a strong community, friends and family, a site can become.

Me, I love our community, be it our blogs or the www.savingadvice.com site. A close knit family, with opinions and advice, a few emotional battles now and then. But that's part of being a family. The good, the bad, the ugly, the spending and saving and free advice. Family.

Money. It brings families together, pulls them apart, and weaves them back together again.

    Yes, this is a wonderful community. Sometimes I wish we could all get together and have a fun gabfest, party, frugal meeting of minds! You guys keep my honest! :-) And on track!

    BETRAYED! That's the exact word I used in my ONE response to what's happened at DAGG and ya know what!?!?! They deleted the whole friggin thread!!!! The tone of the thread wasn't even close to the tone expressed yesterday. It was adult and sad; not at all subversive. And yet, there seems to be NO ROOM for discussion on the matter.

    We are being treated like errant little children who will get time outs or go to bed without dinner. Families.com can go to hell!

    I had the same problem whit another site, and also i had many problem because of it merging. It took me a while to recover my losses and also i was disappointed because the site didn't assured us first. The users fount out among the last. I don;t understand is the site's interest too. Anyways i lost my trust and now i' m cautious.
