Just a question, does everyone believe that if an account is found to be a multi-account, that the votes cast under that account ought to be removed? In addition to any other potential penalties for those actions?

Is there anyone (who doesn't wish away with the voting system all together) that believes that these votes ought to stay up?

Just asking.

I believe they should be taken down and both accounts banned.
Me -Phil left the site in my charge. I have a recorded phone conversation to prove it.
kohai -If you're the owner, then do something useful like ip block him and get us away from juggle and on a dofferent host!
Me -haha you apparently don't know my history
Kohai - Maybe not, but that doesn't matter! You shoukd still listen to your community and quit being a tyrrant!
Me - i was being completely sarcastic
Kohai - then u misrepresented yourself by impersonating the owner—a violation of the tos

Just asking.

It depends, if someone is using multiple accounts to get double voting power while voting rationally and leaving rfd's with one account, I think that only their alt accounts' votes should be removed.

A vote-bomber is a vote-bomber, period. If they're getting bonus votes, none of their votes are trustworthy. The RFDs are almost definitely going to show some bias.

Everyone has bias. Are you saying that you don't have bias and that you can vote and show your bias but others can't?

He's saying that those who resort to votebombing have more bias.

Prove, no. But once someone resorts to vote-bombing, they have no right for their other vote to count.

Dude, vote-bombing is just wrong. I'd rather lose to an opponent, because all my judges were complete idiots than lose to somebody who vote-bombs. Vote-bombing is like violating the Constitution, it's a bad move that needs to be punished severely.
Seriously, Pluto is no longer a planet?
