    I have huge problems with "spam" or more likely people building scripts and vote for one answer. I have the block by IP and cookies active but still that is to easy to get around. Please help, whar can I do to increase security.

    and we have blocked ip's too, but they seem to find a way around it very easy.

    I only can suggest allow registered users to vote only, in this way you can guarantee it is real.

    There is nothing much I can do with spam voting because IP can be changed easily. ad IP+Cookie check is no way guarantee it is a real user.
