    yeah but when you do something like that some twat will just create bunch of acounts to downvote whoever they dont like. people have been doing that on reddit for years.

    That's a hell of a lot of effort to create a ton of accounts just to downvote something into oblivion on a BBS.


    Also, Reddit's algorithm has been able to detect mass coordinated downvoting for at least a decade, now. For the most part, anything that gets buried due to downvotes is fairly organic.

    I've literally seen people do stuff like this several times just with my time using synchronet in the telnet age. there are some crazy people out there.

    Also, Reddit's algorithm has been able to detect mass coordinated downvoting for at least a decade, now. For the most part, anything that gets buried due to downvotes is fairly organic.

    i've seen it done to myself and other people. there's a guy that has a botnet in the milwaukee reddit. if you arent a huge liberal you get burried with a
    ton of downvotes if this guy is watching. it LOOKS organic but if you follow that reddit enough you know when people are on and how things look when it's regular people. for sure people have figured out how to game reddit in many ways.


    so you dont think my challenge idea is good? i think it would help prevent a lot of this random spam. give them a challenge if they have less than x amount of logons and posts. it wouldnt be that annoying and after a while it would go away.
