I think they have improved on the tent since the posts from 2007 and 2008. I just purchased this last week with the free shipping code (YEH!) and I love it and find it to be very sturdy. I tried doing things to see if the tent would collapse and it didn't. If you snap the poles into the holes securely, you should not have any problems.
