I'm not here to defend anyone, and I wasn't paying attention so I didn't see whatever prior drama occurred.
However, I would like to point out that it is entirely possible and reasonable that more than one real person could be accessing JKO and even signed-up for JKO from the same IP address. Most businesses and some ISP's route all individual users through a proxy to access the Internet. This is done both for security and performance. Hundreds or thousands (in my case, tens of thousands) of individual employees will share a proxy IP address whenever accessing the Internet from work, or from their work computer at home.
It is also reasonably possible that several coworkers enjoy the same recreational activity (Jeeps/Off-Roading) and are active on the same forums (JKO), and even talk to each other in person to form similar opinions. And these people might decide to all support a particular ROTM contestant, and might even all cast their votes while at work and, thereby, be logged under the same proxy ID.
I'm not saying that there isn't some element of conspiracy involved. But is a few buddies getting together at work to vote for each other (or to stand-up for each other in a disagreement) any worse than the guys who ask other members of their club or their relatives and friends to vote in their favor?
If there was douchebaggery involved then by all means take appropriate action. But before using a common IP address as prima facie evidence of fraud, you should at least do a lookup of the IP address to determine if it is a corporate proxy or an individual's home computer. In this case you would find the source IP's are, in fact, assigned to a large corporation.
