When I looked a little while ago, there were 5 RECF posts atop the "Best Of" list. All had a similar number of recs. The two posts that I read were of poor quality.

It is quite obvious that somebody is gaming the rec system. This matters because as it is, the Best Of list is not a useful too to decide which posts to read. Of course we can just ignore anything from RECF. But there are times when the REC FRAUD is used to pollute other boards such as PA or Atheist Fools.

It doesn't look like TMF is going to do anything about this problem. I'm certainly not the first to complain.

I just wanted to remind the doppels that we're on to them. They can play their silly games....but they are not fooling anybody....except themselves.
