I think not (_;)

going by that score, you should also HAVE to comment if you leave positive heat.

Imagine the boring dross youd have to read through??

Why?

why only cold votes? why shouldnt you have to justify hot votes also? it will NEVER happen and has been debated a million times- 2days ago we had a half price deal in sainsburys for henry the hoover which reached almost 2000 degrees when,in fact the deal NEVER existed,nobody got one(not even the op)-so maybe the people who voted that hot should have to explain themselves?

Yeah, those manic hot voters bug me more than the coldies.

I can see both sides of the arguments but itdoes annoy me when a deal goes cold when it's clearly the best price and there are no comments to justify

The first 10 or so votes a deal gets should require a comment to be entered.

It's about time this was brought up.

Ive given up posting deals now. Fed up of people voting cold with no reason. If you can get it for a better price, then share the knowledge. Too man people voting cold for petty reasons.

How can you say that when you don't know why they voted cold?If you can … How can you say that when you don't know why they voted cold?If you can find the product cheaper elsewhere, the majority of people post and let you know. Anything other then that for me I think is petty.I see from your history that you have posted far more hot deals than cold ones.Why give up?One of your last ones got to over 1000 degrees. Impressive.

If you vote a deal hot then it is surely because its the best price etc, the thread would be silly with 100's of comments all saying 'best price'
If you vote cold surely its because theres a better deal elsewhere, the product is bad, or the retailer is bad, therefore it would be beneficial to others to say why.
If I vote cold I usually say why unless its already been mentioned in the thread, if I vote hot I rarely bother.

my point is that the need to add a comment doesn't add or remove any validity to the vote. just adds extra spam.
people that were going to be voting for nonreasons can do so anyway, same for fanboys.
each way they should cancel out

and if you had to leave a reason then the mods would be able to see you were voting cold for stupid reasons and reduce/remove your voting ability

That would make the mods an arbiter for what is a stupid or sensible reason, which ultimately would devalue the whole point of a 'vote' and make the mods the overall decision makers in what is a hot-deal and what is not. Given that the mods themselves often get this decision wrong I don't think it would be a step forward.

Nice play on words there.
Petty reasons, for example voting cold a xbox deal because they prefer playstation - but reasons never stated.

nah no toys only my johnny seven but you was too poor to own one

PERHAPS... the best way is when you vote COLD (or hot even) you are given a quick hover button option to say why e.g

1) Can get cheaper elsewhere
2) Can get the next model up for cheaper...

Sure there would be a massive debate on wording and types of reason
