Sure, that's a problem. The proper solution is to ban subs and users who manipulate votes, not abolish the system.

We don't make murder legal just because a small number of people violate the laws against murder. We punish the violators. You should do likewise here.

And who would ban subs and users who manipulate votes? We have no employees and we are not making money. We are doing this in our spare time. Now everyone at least has the same powers and the playing field is equal.

Perhaps you could recruit some trusted members from the community who could fulfill this role. They'd be somewhere between mods and admins, and their job would be to crack down on misuses of the site, including upvote trading.

The counterpoint can be made that you don't even need a dedicated vote verse, it is easy to get hundreds of points with one post or comment, as it has happened now to me.

As long as it's not gamed, it's fine, you deserve them.
