pure awesome! On another note, is there a built in maximum for accounts blocked? i'm thinking of the down vote bots from Lord Sparticus and several other factions that champion a cause on occasion.

We are actively working on alt detection and will be dealing with this problem very soon. The good news is we have all the data we need to test against.

Vote manipulation destroys credibility in our platform and community and can not continue.

Accounts that would naturally be throttled are supported by upvotes and accounts that are brigaded are restricted. It's the opposite of how the system is supposed to function.

Maybe lock upvotes and down votes when you raise minimum ccp in a sub? That will prevent alt farms.

Or better yet, lock upvoats after 7 days the same as downvoats, and if you delete a comment, you lose any of the voats on it,

@puttitout i'm interjecting into an important convo between two obvious overt shills for silence, oee who participated in the locke silence attempt and tipman, an open shill against me and free speech in general. please note that in the surrounding conversation, these shills make it seem like it's a good thing to make voats not count if you delete. this creates a chilling effect whereby people can self-censor to undo downvoat brigades or upvoat brigades. it just makes things worse. this is ALL slippery slope, the shadow now greyboxing included. remember -ccp restrictions are also overt voat censorship. we need to continue to make the anti-spam system better so we won't need to restrict all users to accomplish security.

and tipman, an open shill against me and free speech in general.

Nope, just against you. You need to fuck off and die.
