How important is timing when posting a deal?
In past questions we have discussed the strange quirks of posting deals here including the fact that the same or similar deals differ widely in the votes they receive for no discernible reason. Members have postulated that votes sometime reflect the reliability (popularity?) of the poster or vendor, sometimes it seems to reflect the herd mentality of the voting crowd, and sometimes it's just the bad luck of timing.
A couple of weeks ago I posted this deal for Bootie Pop Classic Cotton Padded Panties for $4.99 with free shipping. I don't recall whether there were any downvotes or how many their might have been, but the total vote count by the time I expired the deal was a positive 31 votes. There was a lively discussion on the merits of "fat bottomed girls" vs. "flat-bottomed girls," and links provided to a couple of relevant music videos. Overall, it was fun.
Last night I discovered that the same deal was available again on the same site (thatdailydeal).
