Didn't vote on it at all, but when I looked at it I too felt it was a bit of favoritism.

You have many avenues at your disposal for announcements on this site. If it is industry news/announcements, I thought that's what the insider was for? If it's just for conversation, sure, the Lounge works. However, to make it a sticky in the lounge seemed like you were using the bully pulpit to shove it at us.

I know you have said that you have done this type of thing before, and I vaguely recall some of them, but they are few and far between and extremely inconsistent. I think it is the inconsistency that bothers me more than the favoritism. If you want to notify people of important tech events, you have many options. Going straight to the sticky for these announcements seemed like overkill. (Also overkill because: were you even on the internet that day? did you not get bombarded by iPhone announcements everywhere you turned? I was sick of the iPhone 5 before it was even announced.)

I think you should reserve sticky posts for "YOU MUST READ THIS NOW" type of posts, and not "YOU MAY FIND THIS OF SOME INTEREST" type of posts.
