Exactly, I just happened to be browsing this site one day and saw the ACE ad was up, so I snatched it. Even though it's now been removed from the site, I was quick enough to grab it and have it saved on my computer. It didn't look impressive by any means, but it was an ad regardless. The ability to save and the amount of C&D letters that come out make me wonder why anyone wouldn't download the scan when it becomes available. That way you have it regardless of whether or not it remains on here. Last year I had almost every ad that was put up on the site. After Black Friday I simply deleted them from my computer. It made the most sense to me that way I could actually view the ad in addition to seeing a text description like is on this site also.

You got it. I'm going to try to save the ad scans for next year, so I have something to compare to! It might be interesting to see that happens year to year.. Anyone have scans from last year still?

I like this site oodles, but I don't even think the owner would expect us to boycott retailers who send him C&D's.

It has no impact on my purchasing, but I'll give the employees a dirty look on the way out. ;)

With the economy where it is at, I think that retailers should dispose with the C&D and release their prices early.

People are going to be looking for the deals this year, and just by releasing an ad early will allow people to add that store to thier go-to places, thus increasing more volume and activity for that store.

Also, All in all, it depends on the prices, but to me it seems as though these retailers that participate in the C&D censorship do not have the greatest deals anyway.

Yeah, I've noticed that too! I would think the retailers wouln't mind the leaks though b/c then they can see their competitors' prices and offer online deals to undercut them. Duh!
