in reply to Challenging votes
It's an interesting solution, but I have to agree with
those that say this would open up more problems.
I whined a couple weeks ago when I noticed some (8?) of
my first nodes all dropped a rep. That happened two days
in a row and then in CB someone noted that a bunch of their
old nodes gained a rep. This either happened right after
or before votes came in. I was on line at the time so
that's how I noticed and I setup xrepwalker to just
see if I could get a better pattern. Would of needed to do
a user watch as well, but by then it was past worrying.
I don't think it was personality voting, but a bot
that was just dumping votes to get the %25 bonuses. Of
course that could then be used for arming a better bot.
I think we could setup something that would catch
simple or single-minded bots. Of course, that might
also catch the person who just did a personality shoot as
