in thread What technique does perlmonsk use to prevent double voting?

Someone might want to do it as some sort of personal challenge, or to try and "subvert the system", or because they're bored, or because they want to annoy people. It wouldn't necessarily be a huge deal, but it would be quite annoying to have someone running some kind of bot that started making the node reputations outrageously high or low. Although node reputations really aren't any more useful than seeing what nodes people liked or disliked, a bot like this could make the reputation system even less useful because people would just start ignoring it altogether.
