This is a serious issue. Imdb needs to address it ASAP. Trolls are taking over the Imdb rating system. Imdb needs to be saved. What are the Imdb board members doing to authenticate ratings?

Why do you assume that it's all due to trolls and haters?
People are allowed to have different opinions aren't they?
It could be just people who didn't like it.

When the IMDb staff spot sock puppet accounts, they freeze and shortly close the accounts. The calculation of the average also involves weighted scores. What more is there to be done?
