Shannon, I do agree with you.
The minute I realized how you get votes on this thing, I lost all interest for my entry.
I also agree that what talenthouse are doing is very cool, it allows for creative people to be discovered,
but they need to be able to protect their users from fraud. This isn't something new, it's a requirement for any site that hosts user content, and even more, contests around that content, it's more than a rule, it's mandatory.
So yes, perhaps outing the cheaters is not the best way to go, but it's surely better than allowing some frauds forcing their way into a U2 fan's dream.
Dream Out Loud!
