Hello all,

For the third time since the ratings system was implemented, we have
had someone rate all of the files listed at VDSWORLD down. This is an
inexcusable action for someone to take here. I have investigated the IP
address and it is not a crawler.

From now on, harsher restrictions will be implemented into the ratings
system, and the "bogus" negative ratings will be erased.

You can send me the IP address and I'll do an netblock ban on their entire ISP.

I think one way may be to apply all negative ratings only after a Site team member reviews it - may be weekly even. This will prevent the mal user geeting satisfaction seeing the "fruits" of his bad effort.

Actually the best method might be one Vic talked to me about, is to have
a "flood-control" mechanism, like this board does, which will prevent the
rating of more than one file in a period of anywhere from 15 seconds to
a minute or so. Smile

may be - though I don't know what happened this time - negative ratings are being given to multiple files not multiple negatives to same file. So I don't know how much flood control will help.

Right, but if we don't allow another file rating on any file it would help. Smile
