Question to hosts: strange 5-stars voting
Oct 22, 2011

Let’s imagine that some one gives a 5-stars to an entry, and that vote is the only one the same user gives into a single challenge.

Ok, it could happen... some one just looks at 1 single pic and tells him/herself: "I love this photo!!!", so 1 pic gets a 5-stars and the other XXX don't get any vote.
But... what if two (or more) different users do the same?

I will have an entry with two (or more) 5-stars from different users who didn't vote for any other entry in the same challenge.

To me that could be suspicious, I must confess... especially if the other votes that entry receives are far from 5-stars...

I know, the voting system here is the subject of many, many discussion, but this kind of situation makes me really confused, "when" and "if" happens (I'm sorry, but it happens...).
What would you do? Would you DQ the entry that received those 5-stars or not?
Can a host DQ a picture because of a "suspect", without any evidence?
I admit it: I have doubts.
Thank you in advance for your opinions/comments!
