Ballot Stuffing At Amihotornot

from the it's-possible dept

Today must be “waste your time at work” day. The LA Times is running a story of a reporter who put her picture on Amihotornot to see what the experience was like. However, the funny part is that the editors at the LA Times decided that their reporter shouldn’t be rated as low as she was. So, they started stuffing the ballot box and brought her rating up. They involved a bunch of people in the LA Times offices, and then eventually went to the web to find some software to help them stuff the ballot box. While Amihotornot has put in some controls, apparently these editors outwitted them, and got their reporter into the top ten. Productive day at the office, I guess.
