Now this all doesn't sound like a big deal, until someone puts on their resume that their articles on evolt.org have consequently been voted "Highest Rated article" over the years, and it turns out they made 20 logins to vote for their own articles, to show nicely on their resume. And when someone else starts getting a well-rated article, this person can use his 20 logins to "rate it a 1" . Tying articles so blatantly to the author, with bio and picture, and then displaying a top 10 of (essentially) authors, carries a serious responsibility. Cheers, Richard.
