Q: Now I see...

...why some users have been asking dealsplusers to leave feedback as to why they thumbed their deals down.  Now that I am actually making over $.10 on more deals, I am getting enough views that I see the effects of thumbs downing. :/

nobody will post negative feedback, because they will get thumb down for it. I do sometimes and I always get a thumbs down,,,,,

@encorez, please give me negative feedback on my deals if it is warranted! And anyone else for that matter, I promise I won't thumb it down :) It helps b/c maybe the site advertised a deal they aren't holding up, or maybe there's a simple detail that will make the deal actually work.

what say you to an "anonymous" comment option?

I don't particularly like the term "negative feedback." Why not constructive crticism? I certainly wouldn't mind it if someone found my deal at a better price & told me and/or had tips on getting a better deal in general

People are more concerned about their rep score going down therefore shy away from posting any comments that would sound offensive.

YES that would work.

I agree with arsiel. It is all about your approach and I find in life constructive criticism gets the best overall reaction. Nobody wants to be called stupid or dumb for posting a deal they may like or may have thought was a good deal. If you know of a better deal or have experience with a certain item, please tell us, but don't be rude or a smarta$$ about it. JMO :)
