Just been surfing around on the site. I was wondering if there was any interest to have a private section where someone would need to have a certain number of posts or a paid membership to access a section in the forum to discuss travel deals. In this way you would not have lurkers and cut down on the traffic. Some members feel that deals will be killed if they are talked about on blogs or on FT. I have some great ideas on deals that could handle a few 100 people, but if they were posted in a very public forum or blog they may not last as long.
