I see that in many many MANY giveaways and every time I'm like.. "Are there so many butt hole who are making a huge fuss when the key happens to be duplicate so people try to protect themselves that way ?"

Are people vindicative when the key happens to be duplicate ?

OMG you have no idea !
It depends, but most of them are pretty chill about it
It's a old habit, at some point people were crap about that
Honestly, I don't understand either

for the most part i dont care but the wording "By entering you agree that I can delete this giveaway if the key doesn't work." may get under my skin if im in a dick mood and therefore make me mark nr

Pretty much this. People who think they are somehow above the general rules of the site annoy me, but I'm generally a live and let live type of person.

Though tbf I'm more likely to mark it as NR if they put it, than if they didn't and just politely asked. That to me shows a more honest intent, even if that's not the case and is only my perception of it.

If I'm unsure about one of the keys I have, I'm throwing it in the orphan thread or just giving it to a friend rather than making a giveaway. It's my responsibility to make sure it's correct and rectify the situation. Not the winners.

Maybe all that makes me a dick, idk/idc.

No, that makes you an honest, person who understands the rules of the site.

Haven't read all of the comments but figured I would just give my thoughts anyway.

In reality, the person giving away the game should have a fairly good idea, if not 100% sure that the key or gift in question is LEGIT REDEEMABLE, and if they have any thought or indication otherwise they SHOULD NOT list it in the first place. Total double standard in my eyes.

You can have one set of rules for one group, one set of rules for another, and one set of rules for yet ANOTHER? That starts introducing a lot of confusion.

Why should one or a few people get special treatment because they are nice? You can argue that however you chose, because being nice is a good gesture in itself; yet you can't keep enabling people to do these things.

Oh I have complicated feelings about that sentence. It became such a big thing at one point where I was starting to think I hope they dont agree. People can be free to put that, since support doesnt take that as a safety blanket for deletion. Like an above comment when I see it I do just think no I don't agree. I felt bad when I got given some dodgy keys and couldn't replace them. I was lucky enough to have them all won by people I know who were very understanding. The idea of putting that (which would be a surprise since I do my best to get rid of keys as fast as possible) just feels wrong. Like here take a key that might not work and no i wont try anything if it doesn't. Its strange to say but to me seeing sorry I cant replace it do you mind deleting it after finding out the key doesnt work is better then having the warning and having it not work. Then its a complicated matter of well seem like a dick if i dont agree but agreeing feels like im forced to

I am a hypocrite though. If its someone I know I would go sure straight away not even thinking about it. Frankly in the end I would probably agree despite feeling pressured. I dont want any nr in my wins just like they dont want it in in their sent. So yeah it really all depends on my mood. Im not against giving some people the benefit of the doubt as long as its clear its not a thing thata being abused
