Does clicking in order to leave a negative comment or tattle contribute to a deal's popularity?
In response to an earlier question posted about spammy deals, and in an attempt to become a better Wootizen, I took more time going through the "fresh" deals this morning. I made an effort to research deals that appeared to be fake and tattled on a few users. I even started a list of users who appear to only post spammy deals which are not deals at all. I figure the list will help me to save time researching them in the future and just go straight to tattle.
When tattling, I chose "other" - included a description similar to "This user is regularly posting spammy "non-deals" - using Woot for free advertising." - and included a link to the user's activity page.
However, I'm wondering if the act of clicking in order to tattle is, in actuality, only contributing to their overall popularity, rather than helping to weed them out. Also wondering if there's a better or more effective way of tattling. Does anyone have wisdom or expertise to offer on this subject?
