Exclamation Rating Padding

Hello I've noticed something very corrupt with this website, the amount of rating padders is out of control...

I've noticed alot of really great mods have been padded down to very low stars, and some mods that contain spyware padded up to almost 10 stars. I think mods like Countryside Mountains V should be removed from GTA4-Mods.com because along with the custom mod pack is hidden with 63 hits of spyware...

I myself am a programmer and stuff like this bothers me very much. If you look at the bottom of the page Stilldre and a few of his buddies comment saying they rated it 10 twice...

Isn't there any kind of rule against this or is it a rating padding war?

If somebody wants to pad the ratings, they're going to do it. I can add whatever blockers I want - restricting by user, IP address, whatever - they're all rather easy to get around if you somebody really wants to. There's no real way to completely lock it down to one vote per person. We do our best to make sure that people don't have duplicate accounts, but it's hard to manage when you have hundreds registering each day. The best thing you can do is report the issue here.
