Someone rigged our media poll

Postby Ian on Mon Feb 23, 2009 12:03 pm

Looks like Moser Baer or someone that really likes our media put in a ton of votes over the weekend. MBI media now has twice as many votes as both TY and Verbatim. :evil:

I'm looking at the logs and seeing a lot of IP's from airtelbroadband.in and sify.net. Both are from India.

Many of the votes came from 210.210.78.178. The person was switching between IE and and different versions of Firefox.

I'm pretty convinced that this was done by someone at Moser Baer. I got a few emails from someone over there in early January. The emails originated from the IP 210.210.78.182, which is VERY close to the one the votes came from.

Either way.. this is really lame. I'm thinking of resetting the MBI votes back down to 0.

Weird, waste of time and pisses people off. I've actually had some ok media made by them, depends on who they made it for. TY was still tops, though I never find it anymore.

Looking at the logs, a lot of the votes also came from 221.134.76.54. There is either two people doing this or the same person is doing it from work and home.
