Found this great company

softuk.com

They sell video games and DVDs
I have just bought Final Fantasy XI on the xbox for 16.99 and because I am a member (it was free to join) I got 6% back the posting was free as well
There is a free delivery code for new customers MUFC001 I used it on my first order
I have been told that anyone can use it as often as they like so pass it on
There prices are great and I plan to use them for my 3 sons exams presents
My sister has given me a list of games she would like for her kids she dose not have a computer but their prices are so good she is ordering through my membership and I get the 6% money back
It will go in to my softuk account
I can buy more games with it and I will get 6% back of them as well or I can take the cash
i think i will buy Call Of Duty 3 on the Wii Due for release on 01/12/2006
soft have got on preorder for 32.99 play have it for 37.99 plus i will get 6% back


Its a great idea so I thought I would pass it on
I hope you find it useful
If you have any web sights with a good bargain that you think I would like to visit please post them here

Trouble is that they will probably re-emerge in another guise, don't know why they are allowed to do that Twisted Evil

When I first saw this post late last night, I was all set to delete it as spam, however, I noticed that it was the poster's second post and after checking noticed that many forum members, including myself, contributed to that first thread. So I decided to leave it.

If this sort of thing happens again, then you'll have to ask Mike what he thinks ought to be done about it, I don't like being heavy-handed about this sort of thing.

Fair enough, I noticed the 2 posts on there as well and thought perhaps it is genuine until I read it Wink They don't seem to sell Linux supported games though, not that I would really by from them anyway.

Compromise time.

I've edited it. Any one seriously interested can obtain the information from the OP, but there is no advertising, as such, in the post.
(Bearing in mind the linking, google scores sort of thing).

If helend wishes to object, she can consult Mike and the other forum admins.

This might be a sophisticated spam tactic. Make the first post innocuous so that forum members reply to give the OP a little credibilty, and then follow with the spam a day or so later.

Perhaps you could just edit out the link for now, Rhakios, or replace it with this link.
