I really hope it's not shut down for good. I regularly visited that page and found out about so many awesome deals.

Thanks for all the deals, Bargain Barreler.

I didn't even notice that this thread was from 2015! Wow Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes

I heard about it on here actually, just stumbled across a post that mentioned it. I guess people don't really like disclosing their sources for deals (especially concerning Amazon deals) as there's sometimes/usually a very limited quantity available.

I'm surprised you've never heard of him since you've been here since 2005. Barrels was an epic Amazon deals (along with other stores - but mostly Amazon) poster on here beginning about a decade ago. A couple of years ago, he quit RFD cold turkey and started posting his Amazon deals on his Facebook page. About a year ago, he opened up a second Facebook page for non-Amazon deals. If you remember Mahjongmaniac, Barrels was the MM of Amazon deals. Many (I'd say most) of the Amazon deals you have seen on here the last 2-3 years have been ripped from Barrels' website and posted here without credit to him.

MJM was probably the most active poster on RFD at one point by far. I think he had something like 10000 more posts than the second highest poster on the board but a lot of his posts were also quality deals. And like Barrels, he quit RFD cold turkey.

Barrels' other FB page.

I always wonder if people quit or if they fell ill or died. As horrible as that suggestion is, I have been on RFD for years. At some points, some people have known me personally.

If a big poster just stops posting, since we are talking about years of membership, it IS an actual possibility.

Truth is, we probably have hundreds if not thousands of RFD users who are now no longer living, but unless someone tells us first hand about them, we would have no idea.

Okay, back to my cave ...
