Wizard, do you ever wonder when you poll and ask for member input that you have several members with multiple accounts that sign in and out, voting and casting influence over events?

Maybe there is much better control that makes it not easy, I don't know.

But I could see how it could cause some mischief. For instance, If not many people participate in commenting on your new site, 5 members might comment the site looks good in a pink background. All the same person.

50 people vote Jerry Logan as most popular member ever.

That sort of thing; maybe not so exaggerated.
No one has ever proven I am not God.

Does anyone really have that much time on their hands?

I'd say members with 10000, 15000 posts do. And oh, the quality...!

69 posts. Don't worry, you'll think of something
to say eventually. Don't give up. There's a good
lad..
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.
