maybe next time force us to type a kaptua text or only vote 1 time per registered account. Your flash based cookie/cache mechanism doesn't hold a candle to the l337 skills of script kiddies.

oled fans basically hang back all day to see how the bot goes... it proceeds to rack up ~2800 votes by the end of "business day" and then stablizes

PS: fools aren't supposed to ignore the obvious...they are supposed to be smart enough to find hidden gems and spot cheaters.

my bot accusation isn't on consol its on calamp, they were observed hitting magic numbers all the way through the bracket ...and the oled fans experienced their bot skills in the semi-final but defeated it anyway(we figure they went

maybe next time you should clearly declare this a hackathon as thats what evovled into... then we can all start boning up on web scraping python skills and watch the vote count reach near infinity and crash your servers instead of

"winner determined by you, the readers." was an outright false statement. The total vote count was way out of proportion to anything else in the competition and I alerted you to the botting in my comments in the oled vs

Sorry I meant to say "readers didn't determine the winner".

Readers didn't determine the reader. Don't you read your comments? An automated voting bot determined the winner and it was evidended in the Calamp camp all the way through... A dedicated team of oled fans faught it and beat it in

another point about proving its a bot is that by voting a fair amount of times it forces the bot to vote a whole bunch more than any rational person would bother going to in order to hit its target...why over vote by 4000 when you

if the bot isn't sophisticated it won't be using a proxy server to hide its ip address... you could just check your iis logs and see if the same ip address keeps voting against oled say around 6000 times...but the more sophisticated

the easy way to test the bot, if you had control of the data, is to set the vote data such that the % is about 12% oled, 88% cnx, see if the bot stops voting...assuming it met a threshold rather than following a predefined number of

no yahoo message board to speak of on cnx, no market pulse, huge institutional ownership of cnx... simply nobody in retail land would give a hoot about running a bot in favor of cnx as an investment... on the other hand there is the

I should also add that oled had reached 37% around 8:26 pm when the bot kicked back with a vengeance. I presume it won't stop again until it hits 85% target when it stopped earlier today. What a shame and a sham. Voting should have

actually I'm not exactly sure when the bot actually stopped but between 5pm and 530pm I noticed little activity.

the "bot" stopped around 530pm...then resumed about 8:26pm and recommenced voting against oled at about 3 votes/second. (way faster than most would be able to "fast finger" a cache refresh). I come to the
