    you should make it so you can only vote once per ip address.

    This is easily bypassed, all you need is an IP Spoofer and you can vote as many times as you want, just have it generate a random IP everytime you connect.

    I've spot-checked some of the more suspicious looking ones, and the IPs browsed all over the site before and after voting.

    I think some of these sites may actually have a lot of minions, I mean
    users.

    That is true.

    Look, this is just a casual little time-waster project. So far the whole
    thing has driven a lot of activity and discussion. Goal achieved.

    If anyone wants to set up a bullet proof system and make their own run
    at doing this, they have my enthusiastic support.

    i cant believe dude doesn't know someone can just load up tor and get a different ip in a second.

    not only is it strange for hundreds of people to visit his website and vote, it's also strange for so many to vote for that one new bbs.

    it's obviously the bbs operator doing something fishy
