it's like buses!
As for the thread, I thought it was worth mentioning because while it is only 10%, for a $150 set, that is $15 saved on what is already considered a great set.
If you would rather I didn't start such threads, just let me know and I won't. :) (you're the boss after all!)
But we are indeed trying to do something different here in maintaining a collecting ethos so you'll see us consistently discouraging MOC topics and the like. Sale and discount news are definitely a core aspect in collecting but IMHO, I don't think 10% is usually worth noting. Additionally and probably more importantly, Huw and DrD have already created an amazing Amazon Watch on Brickset that captures any and all discounts and even posts articles on the best deals.
Lastly, it's important to minimize the clutter here so as to help members easily find the discussions that interest them and to keep those discussions centralized. So we try and encourage people to build on existing discussions whenever possible and discourage the stream of conscious topics (i.e. what should I buy, I can't find this set in my area, what is the worst way you broke a set, etc).
Guiding this ship is more art than science and this community mostly governs itself.
