Shouldn't all this Great Scott! stuff be for the youtube comments? I'm confused, but covered my arse with this comment which is not in the proper EEVBlog thread.  :palm:
Yeah. The silly part is that a bunch of them have completely ignored the actual forum giveaway thread. Unless Dave or one of the mods locks this thread then the posts will continue.  :horse:

Well, the more people who post in the wrong places, rather than the right ones, increases the odds of winning for the rest of us. :-DD

I thought that at first, but my conscience got the better of me, so I posted a notification in a large font (Reply #25).  That didn't seem to make any difference whatsoever, so now I'm back on board with bitseeker.

Yep, well, unfortunately the OP was a copy+paste from the YouTube video description. At least you tried! :-+

I recommend that they void all the entries in this thread except for the ones which declared that this was not the Keysight Giveaway. (Reply #29)   ;)

Great Scott!

Interestingly, I was in Dunedin last weekend, which is like a copy of Edinburgh in the South Pacific.

The original post is incorrect. The "down below" comment was copied from the YouTube video description.

1 for YouTube comment (this thread isn't YouTube)
1 for EEVblog thread (not this YT announcement thread, the actual giveaway thread)
1 for Patreon
2 for sob story entrants
------------------------------
5 total

I know. Brumby tried before I did. Kudos to you for being one of the few who have read what's going on rather than blindly posting. :-+

Anyway, the final outcome is up to Dave. So, we shall just see what happens.

The problem with any warnings is that you only need a handful of posts to push them out of the way.

That assumes that they read more than the first post (if even that much). :-DD

True.

That is understandable, however.  I mean ... if you read how to get a free scope, you'd just jump in, wouldn't you?  Especially if it's easy, free and you can see others doing it.

It's like watching lemmings.

Me, specifically? Well, obviously not so blindly.

Given the number of entries in the correct thread from people with too few posts to qualify, jumping in before even completely reading the instructions seems to be a popular mode of execution.  >:D
