I've removed references to "THE BAND" name in your post Eli ... Let's deal with the issue with them directly, and somewhat privately ... cool?
A couple of points to consider ...
Hits from AOL users, because they all go through proxy web servers to access the public internet, will appear as coming from multiple IP address ... http requests for a single "user session" will show up in the logs as coming from different servers (IP addresses or host names). So, if a single person were to hammer the voting we would see those votes coming from multiple sources. So, I could see this being the result of a single "human user" or maybe 1-2 users... seems unlikely that 14 people would rally together to spoof the voting ... which brings me to a second consideration ...
On the flip side, I don't want to penalize bands with active (and effective), online fans. It's entirely possible that a band could rally its online fan base to cast their vote(s) in the WMD. I would think just about any band could rally up 14 fans... Let's be sure this isn't the case with THE BAND's votes. I'd rather err on the side of assuming the best in people than be excessive in our policing of the WMD.
I hope the case with THE BAND's votes is the latter, and not the former. Mosey's new features with respect to tracking votes is the best solution, and they will certainly help alleviate the problem. I think this will suffice.
For what its worth, although I use the ratings as a guide to help pick songs to add to the broadcast I audition EVERY song uploaded to the WMD and ultimately add the music I like. Songs with high ratings, but that I don't particularly care for don't make it to the playlist.
This doesn't keep folks from potentially wasting their time and downloading tracks with high ratings that have been spoofed ... but rest assured, our playlist is safe.
