Not looking for a debate here, just some info from Admin.
From comments made on a recent post of mine, it seems that some members don't vote on a deal on it's own merits, but instead look at who posted the deal first before deciding how to vote (and what comments to leave). Obviously this doesn't lead to fair votes and goes against the whole point of the Deals section.
I understand why user-names are a requirement for the site, so have Admin. recognised that this can be a problem and is anything being considered to sort out this unfair way of voting?
