My only guess is that they have more of a following and/or are getting people they know to thumbs up their deals.
But, yeah, I agree. There is a serious lack of quality in some of the deals.
I'm guessing the best way to combat it is to have more of the seasoned members (us) do more pluss'ing. If deals needed 30 or more plusses to FP, it would probably fix the issue. Plusses are free!

Like bbattag said. "People need to compare prices before posting" you could also people might check the prices before thumbing up a deal. Simple to check before posting or thumbing is www.froogle.com put the item in and see how the price compares to many stores.

You can't ask someone to thumb up or down a deal. It depends on everyone's taste and it's a free choice whether or not they thumb up or down that specific deal. After all, mods are the ones that decide the front page deals, so they ignore the ones that are not good "deals". Plus, I agree with akaricke.

sometimes I know the items isnt the best deal but if I find something unique I try to share it. You never know what one person thinks is worthy or not. But I havent been quite as active lately and I should be to see what is going on in the heating up section.
