How would you propose preventing abuse of the system?

One thought I've had would be verified voting, by handwriting the username with a date stamped article on monitor in the background or something like that.

That could easily be abused in any environment with many computers such as an office complex or university. What is needed is a system with no potential for abuse or manipulation by the users.

That would require hand counting of votes, which would easily be open to abuse. It would also be ridiculously easy to fake, just change the setup of your battlestation for each of your accounts. Plus, it would now require effort to vote, which means that the people voting will probably not be regular joes who logged on to /v/football to chew the fat and will be much more likely to be activist users who want to cleanse /v/football of anything they think is transphobic, which is everything.
