Reddit Bans Gaming Site IGN for Vote Manipulation

Mashable "Reddit’s long anti-spam crusade claimed another victim over the weekend. Links from influential gaming site and digital publisher IGN have been temporarily banned from the social news site for what it calls “vote cheating” — using a group of dummy accounts to upvote links and artificially inflate their popularity." (Culture)

I'm actually a little surprised at this. IGN prides itself on popularity - guess it's not as high as we once thought.

Surprised? LOL

IGN fishing for hits just like all the other bottom feeding bloggers.

It makes IGN look like s**t.

Ah, popularity is not the same as credibility.

IGN is on its way out.

Let's hope so.

As a fan of IGN I'm suprised by this. Do I think they're will be repercussions for this? Absolutely. Do I think they'll board up the windows and call it quits? Absolutely not.

Not that I thoroughly enjoy Reddit, but I find IGN's expulsion from that site H.I.L.A.R.I.O.U.S.

You know what the topping on the cake is? They tried defending it like it was the mods. Supposedly administration is having a deep talk with the heads at IGN to try to get the site back on there.

In other words, News Corp is whipping out the checkbook.

IGN is dirty and is owned by one of the most dirty companies ever created so it comes as no surprise to me. I hope all the other sites they feed into look into the spam too, or did NewsCorp already cut them checks to overlook it?

After reading some comments on here, I'm glad I'm not the only one who dislikes IGN.
