Why do people vote you cold ?

You post a genuine deal which is limited availability, but people vote you cold because they are too slow to take advantage of it.

Whats with this? Do you want people to get peed off and not bother posting?

In my (last) case it was just a simple link to free jelly beans. There are only so many given away each day, at random times. I spotted it was open and posted the link. I checked back soon after and it was over for the day, so I expired my deal but meantime I'd been voted cold!

Whats the point?

Yes jack, but its hardly cold either is it. If you're too late then expire the deal, dont post a decent deal cold surely. or am I missing the point?

because there is none left, its hardly hot if there isnt any

Theres a few free jelly bean offers I think, thats normally the genuine reason.

Its not the end of the world is it?

Isn't that what the expired button is for?

I dont see what the issue is unless people are abusive toward you ..

ok that makes it a bit different

I am a bit of the opinion that many that vote cold lack control in their life.
Its their way of exercising a little bit of power over another :-D

Sad really. Its stopped me posting many times as whether or not it really makes a difference if the poster perceives it as such it adds up to the same thing.
End result - site loses

It's time to take a break from your PC when this sort of thing starts bothering you. :roll:

lol nice one. Losing the plot coz somebody voted your post cold....

it could be voted cold for many reasons, like some people say it may have sold out so its hardly a deal for them, or they could have found it much cheaper elsewhere yada yada yada....

One of the classics is the 360 Vs PS3...no matter if its a good deal or not, you tend to find that it turns into a debate rather than be a deal!

Does it really matter? Important thing is that you thought you were doing a good thing bringing the deal to peoples attention on the board....who cares whether its rated hot or cold just as long as you get the deal...lol
