It's been about 24 hours since I banned about half the votes on this site by
- Requiring level 2 and above to vote at all
- Banning those suspected of being proxy users, participating in "thumb orgies", and voting up spam pages.
FAQ: But won't there be less votes?
Answer: If it really matters I could just make every vote count for 10 votes. It's just a number. People come here to see funny stuff.
What were you expecting from this?
I dunno, maybe smarter people who contribute to the site can vote now and thus vote up better content rather than people who come here once, vote on something stupid then leave and never come back. Plus less spammers/proxy vote cheaters.
