From personal experience voting gets suspended for spurious reasons such as "bias" or "spelling" (note where I am from and there are others who's first language is not 'murican - whatever )

also I think it would be helpful to have a 'submissions' forum, ie a link where all submissions can be viewed so that you can go thru them and vote on them.
I find it strange also that a submission will hav 60 or so 'views', a number of responses, and only a few votes. I try to allways vote one way or another when I see a submission.

I also believe that there are some organised groups voting in blocks. When you submit a story and only have time to hit refresh to see a -4 vote tally before anyone could have possibly had the time to actually READ the submission (much less the cited sources) then something is going on.
