Thankfully it's not there anymore, but the terrible BMO online only account "deal" was on the front page under the HOT DEALS FORUM sections for quite a while.

I suppose a deal doesn't actually have to be good in order to for it to qualify as "hot"? Face With Tears Of Joy

The front page section currently doesn't take into account vote type and only vote totals. It was also popular by other criteria (replies and views) so it might've appeared simply because of those reasons. We're currently looking into tweaking the algorithm which it uses to determine which threads to show because as you mentioned, people probably aren't that interested in seeing really bad deals.
