Ouch, in my half year at the monastery I didn't hear of anything like it. Someone is actually using a kind of a tool (votebot?) to cast -- votes on nodes of an unsuspecting monk? That's quite unethical.

But wouldn't there be an easy way to fix this? Say, could the pm gods write a script to counter or deter the perpetrators of all evil? I'd imagine, one could block -- votes coming from one IP repeatadly? Although, it won't work for non-static IPs or requests coming via a proxy ? ;/.

chip I sympathize for you, brother. I'll give you as many ++ votes as I can get tomorrow to at least somehow offset the lost you've experienced recently.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
