Sandbagging

A fairly common occurrence in the voting is to find a picture that is highly regarded with a 0.5 vote and often in a specific challenge to see in a number of top twenty positions the pattern repeated.   It's easy to say because I am not an admin but would it not be possible to say check the top twenty and where there is a an unnatural number of 0.5 or even 1 votes and to check that they weren't all from the same person.

I appreciate that we all see things differently but just as an example, in todays big year birds challenge there are 13 0.5 votes in the top 20.  I find it really difficult to see how any of these pictures could justify such a low score.  Perhaps if you gave 0.5 to one of those pictures you could explain your thinking.  If they are all votes from different people I suppose that's just how it is but if they are one or two people trying to manipulate the outcome would it not be possible to identify the culprits.
