You should put a sticky up telling people to hold his character high and not to double vote just a suggestion:)

nah. people can't double vote, it tracks your ip + cookies. There are ways to, but it's very time consuming, and the vast majority of voters don't.

Is it really that time consuming to clear your cookies and cache? It should only take 5 seconds... :confused:

Well, you'd have to jump on a proxy everytime as well.

it might be a good idea to write down a code of ethics. maybe it will help prevent supporters from burning people in other communities.

Honestly.. How many people are double voting out there? Yes, you CAN clear your cookies.. But smart voting systems also track IP addresses. It's more time consuming to get a new proxy to vote again. So in most cases, you need to do both. Clear your cookies AND get on a new proxy. 99% of internet users have no idea how to use a new proxy. For God's sake! How many even know how to clear their own cache and cookies?

The media is trying to make it look like a bunch of kids are pounding the polls with Ron Paul vote after vote after vote. The truth is, it's not nearly that simple. But of course, it's easy to believe... Especially coming from our trust media!
