When are you going to so something about this? It's ridiculous. Do you really not care that people are abusing your site with botnets of fake reviews?

Do you really expect anyone to pay money for IMDB Pro when this is the amount of care you put into the site?

And when the title you reference is 16 years old like the one below it will balance out.
This was artificially higher when it was new too. Time fixes all ratings.

Not all Bots either..................

What's your point? I'm not talking about just the ratings. I'm talking about all the fake reviews. Never said they were all fake, either. Why are you excusing their complete lack of giving a toss about what people post to their site?

Hey Justin - Our voting system already detects and defeats attempts to stuff the ballot and skew the rating, as demonstrated by the difference between the weighted average and the arithmetic mean on the vast majority of titles in the database.
                                       
Our voting system is continually improved in this respect so you can rest assured that abuse is always automatically detected and thwarted.
                                       
We hope this addresses your concerns.as you've been told before IMDb has an algorithm for reviews and ratings that is designed to defeat attempts to game the system and audits take place at random intervals which should remove reviews and ratings submitted in an attempt to sabotage the title in question
