    A website that starts with Re and ends in s actually hired a person to just sit on SC and steal all the flyers and post it in their new flyers section. Couponlady spends sleepless hours working on posting the flyers and they all get stolen within minutes by official employees of that website. If anyone doesn't believe me please ask couponlady yourself in private. Given how big the website is and the fact that it's owned by a multi-million dollar company, I find this behaviour unacceptable.

    They've also gone to the point of contacting a couple of big companies and using their power to try getting me sued. I won't get into details because if I do you'll be shocked that big multimillion dollar companies can stoop that low.

    great idea.... but couponlady is usually so on the ball and posts them early anyways... hope she gets some incentive herself for being in charge of this... ... also does that mean couponlady won't be posting them anymore? I liked her posts!

    Well the site isn't big enough for me to know who you are talking about so they are no bodies! Or I should just come out from underneath my rock ... one or the other

    EDIT: I came out from underneath my rock thanks to google. Shame people have to steal from others.

    To show that the flyers weren't simply copied and pasted from another site, the poster should write their SC name on the flyer in pen! That way it will show that it came from their hands Just an idea

    Some people posting flyers here have sometimes superimposed the words SC or Smart canucks on it..Would be good if most people could do that. Then if another site tries to copy the actual flyer they would be caught because it would say smart canucks all over it,lol.

    I like this idea. But with all due respect, I have yet to receive my $2.50 and $5 GCs (for # of posts). When that happens, I'll be on board...

    Now if anyone has any advice on how I can get those GCs, please let me know!

    Boo has been asking for a couple months now if anyone is owed anything to email him at the email in the thread listed below. Have you read that thread and followed through on what it says to do? Anyway if you read this quick enough boo is online right now maybe he can answer you.

    Putting SC on them is definitely a great idea, but it doesn't stop them being stolen. People will just use Paint or something to put a box over your name, you can tell they are stolen but they dont care

    I mean I remember seeing people write a transparent "smartcanucks" right across the actual flyer in several spots, so you could still read the flyer but could see it said smartcanucks. If they put a box over that it would actually block parts of the flyer.

    Yep and its not unusual to see blurring or boxes covering parts of flyers sadly. I also don't know if some of the people uploading them would know or have software to upload it with a low opacity layer.

    Still people will steal them anyway but I think writing on them in pen will show you really were the one to get them

    Couponlady is doing such a great job! Kudos to her! SC won't be the same without her


    As for that multi-million dollar company stealing SC's flyers, it's hard to believe it. Unreal! They should be the one to get sued. Unacceptable, foul and distasteful!

    Thanks for sharing this inside scoop Boo
