I've seen loads over the years. Someone voting cold because they don't like a persons avatar, someone voting a contact phone deal cold because theirs isn't due for renewal yet.

Some of the HUKD community are a little strange, but funny!! (_;)

(sometimes)some of the reasons why a deal is super hot are equally as dumb

Well we should be pasting the comments in here as they see them, and then these numpties might realise they are idiots......

I wouldnt imagine the reasons for voting hot are stupid, that must be very rear :P

For anything niche the voting system is flawed. It's ok for your general mainstream things like Games, blu-ray, DVD's etc but anything else and it's hit and miss and often can be dependant on who posted it.

The more people that join the site then the worse it will get as you have so many people that will just click hot or cold for the hell of it.

The thing that gets me is the constant assumptions made - bad parent/dole scrounger/chav etc. just from a deal posting with a spelling or grammar mistake. Oh and heaven forbid someone posts a deal for unorganic chicken or captive bred carrots....

why not just post on the thread to show them how stupid they are?

Thats what I do

The non constructive comments should be named and shamed to stop them. I now know of a few people on here that do not want to post deals with the fear of being hounded by idiot who are so critical with everything!! Is there any one else out there that agrees?

I for one 100% agree with the OP, quick note OP you mean idiot`s NOT idiot i know of lots them too00000000000000000000, we not alone
I today actually posted a deal,with the good feeling "that it would not be picked upon by my spelling or grammar mistakes lol "unlucky you"

If you think that someone is constantly abusing the voting system then report the thread in question. If it is the odd remark, as infuriating as it is, I think you should rise above it and certainly not let it put you off of posting.

In any event, the voting temperature will even itself out if the deal is a good one. .

'Makes my blood boil...'


At the end of the day, it is what it is - its an internet shopping forum. If you think a deal is good, then it doesn’t matter what other people think; all deals are subjective. Why get so wound up about something as trivial as an internet forum? Yes it annoys me that people can be like that on here, but it also annoys me that people take it so seriously as to actually let it effect their real life in anyway shape or form.

My advice is to 'man up' and if you think a deal is good and want to share it then go for it. It's not 'real', people are only like it on here because they are too scared to say stuff in real life. Fact.

My point exactley. 'Fear of being hounded' What? Are you serious? Anyone that has a 'fear of being hounded' on somewhere like this needs to take a real close look at their life if you ask me!!

Grow some balls and take it for what it is. The people on here arent your real friends, this is not 'real life', who gives a *beeeep* what someone says to a post?!

Whether it be on a forum or in "real" life people should try and be polite to others etc,ok,we all have our off days and may not be as "nice" as we should be,but there are many people who will ridicule others on deal threads just because they can.

I'd hazard a guess most would not be so forthright in "real" life though.

bigger problem is onkyo/sony

I don't need to 'man up'.......i don't care what people say. However i don't bother because i rather see it from the point of view than why do the idiots a favour.

I still post the odd deal but when i find a really good deal or a glitch then everyone can go and whistle for it.

Look at you showing off you know how to spam, lol, div!

There is so many people here that just wants to spam everything, just because THEY dont agree. Same with the deals, if THEY personally dont like the product they vote cold, so many **** on here man. And it is a fair point I shouldnt care about it, but its kind of wearing when you read through posts trying to get opinions on the products etc, then u see these stupid comments. And your right as well, its normally people that wouldnt say these kind of things in real life.....

Here's a winner for name and shame oO
