Good thought!

But on the other hand, if you look at those Apple MacBook deals, they were good deals(subjective), but got a lot downvote because some people only look at hardware spec

So the logic should be

If manufacturer="Apple ", ignore downvote number
Else if store='Canadian tire' , excludes from trending
Else if downvote >=20 , exclude from trending

Improving how the various "trending" pages/sections work is something we're hoping to do later this year. It currently uses a fairly simple logic set right now and it doesn't take into account whether it's trending for the right (or wrong) reasons.
