Someone thinks their personal opinion is important so *I* challenge whomever it is to be bold and comment. BTW, we're suppose to use the "flag" option for things like "not a deal" "bad info" "dupe" - OR, if it's cheaper someplace else, prove it by POSTING it.
Thumbing down the deal because YOU don't need it is kinda sad BUT not liking who posted/updated a deal or because they updated YOUR deal 1st is just rude.
I double-dog dare whomever it is. If you speak the truth, I will respect your opinion but if you act out in spite, stop cuz it's really childish.

^ Internet bots, also known as web robots, WWW robots or simply bots, are software applications that run automated tasks over the Internet. Typically, bots perform tasks that are both simple and structurally repetitive, at a much higher rate than would be possible for a human alone. The largest use of bots is in web spidering, in which an automated script fetches, analyzes and files information from web servers at many times the speed of a human. Each server can have a file called robots.txt, containing rules for the spidering of that server that the bot is supposed to obey.
A bot is a program that performs operations automatically. People with programming skills could write a script that could, for example, read down the "heating up" page and thumbs down all deals that met a certain criteria such as a name or a current score, etc. I've had to deal with malicious bots in some chatrooms I've run as well in some websites. I'm not a programmer but it probably wouldn't be that hard to cobble together a script to accomplish thumbing down.
