Thanks for letting me know, but I'm still a little pissed with DDD.
A few months ago they started sending me spam, so I checked their
privacy policy, and sure enough they are spammers-by-default:

On occasion we may send a mailing to your address or send you an
email to update you on special promotions or new releases. If you
choose not to receive such communications you may remove yourself
from our mailing list by emailing us at c...@deepdiscountdvd.com...

I manually sent them a cease-and-desist email, and so far it has worked,
but I really dislike spam-by-default internet vendors with no obvious
opt-out web form.

Well, so far it has proven false. I've ordered a couple of ADV films to
finish off collections and received the discount so unless it was a
mistake, it was probably another one of those Internet rumors.

ADV is trying to put TRSI out of business, if you haven't noticed. ADV
got tired of other websites selling more of there DVD's then they did which
is one of the reasons for the many great ADV sales this year. The other
is ADV just need the money so they can produce Nuku Nuku Phase VII.

The websites that track online sales and discounts have had several
discussions on how DDD raised their prices significantly the day before
the sale (and have done this on the previous 20% sales). Check
www.fatwallet.com and look for deep discount dvd.

The "great sales" which mostly seemed to involve selling off returned stock
which frequently arrived cracked or with barcodes cut off the cover jacket?

Whether ADV or TRSI's shop stay open doesn't really concern me - ADV don't
ship internationally and TRSI's international shipping is an absolute rip-
off. But I think that ADV should take into account a whole BUNCH of other
factors that would mean they don't sell so many DVDs - people like to buy
DVDs from different studios at the same time, the whole international
audience thing, decent customer service and so on and so forth.

Eh, how often do you look at the case.

So true. My order which had a couple of ADV title wouldn't go through
and kept giving me an error message. Since, I was running out of time,
I cancled the order and decided to do it again later. And today all of
the ADV titles are offically missing from Deep Discount's 20% off sale,
which includes the 4 DVD's that I need to complete a couple of series.
;_;
This truly sucks, especially since on Friday I was getting the 20%
taken off of pre-orders, too, due some malfunction with the site. Now,
it's all been fixed. Oh well, I guess I'm just going to have to wait on
those DVD's for later. I think after this sale I'll stop buying as many
DVD's as before--time for moderation.
