Should a comment be required when down-voting a deal?
Simple question.. I find down voting too easy.
This could also prevent people from down voting the bottom deal on the home page :)
This question has been asked several times before (once by me) and generally garners a lot of NO replies. For some good reasons. I personally would appreciate some feedback when someone downvotes my deal (it's hard to understand sometimes - especially when a good item at a good price gets downvoted). Maybe we need a FAQ section with the FAQ's listed, because people here get testy when the same question is asked once a month or so.

No, that would just encourage revenge down voting and make for a more hostile community. A site I used to spend a lot of time on, answerbag.com, used to have down voting and this was always a discussion topic, but luckily it was never implemented. In fact, down voting was removed all together.
Also, I believe both answerbag and woot have maximum down votes allowed to prevent people from going on too much of a negative spree.read more collapse
@1298ty: It's been asked more than twice... I searched "downvote" and it kicked up these: (all related to leaving comments with downvotes)read more collapse
