What is it with the negative voting crap these days?

As title really.

I'm sure many others feel the same, but I feel the need to vent!

I posted a deal again today, it's definitely the best price for the product by around £30 - yet it still is like 5 degrees, despite explaining the price is the best etc.

Why is it that some of the time your deals just head south for no reason - why do folk do it?

If I read I deal I'm not interested in, I won't generally vote on it, I don't indulge in cold voting because I have 9 degrees of 'power' to damage the effort someone has put into it, just because it doesn't interest me.

Sometimes you just feel like giving up posting them, I know I did for a few months!

Thread in question ]here.

Keeps cropping up in feedback, I (and many others) have asked for a dropdown tag asking why you have voted a deal cold but as usual, no luck.
If I do vote cold, I normally add why

Sure fire way of making it icecold moaning about it's temp.

It really doesn't matter does it?

in before the stain adds;



AT LAST

looks like a nice deal to me :?

well to the person posting it, it does



Why does it? you post a deal, others see it, either use it or not, is it important what temp it is.

If a deal is good for you does it put you off it is not hot?

Its important to those going to the effort of posting a deal that folk dont vote a deal cold for no specific reason Greg. It gets very discouraging when they go cold for no reason that can be explained. I know this has been discussed to death on here but I felt the need to vent this time.

theres a difference between it being the cheapest and a good deal!
this is a hot deal site - its not just about finding it the cheapest!!!!!!!!

some people seem to vote on the base of if they need it or not like if they dont need a phone they think this isnt a good deal and vote cold, rather than just not voting at all i dont often vote either way unless i think its a good deal or if i see the op has gone to alot of effort for posting

I take your point, and I don't like deals with BOGOF on tuna, as I don't like tuna, but I wouldn't vote on it either way to be honest.
