This doesn't change the way the voting system works, only makes sure they are displayed in the correct order.

When there are only a few votes being counted, then any such deliberate spoiling will affect the overall result, but that will happen whatever system is used.   But the more votes received, the less effect such a bad vote will have.

When a pic has only 2 votes, 1 of 5 and 1 of 0, then it will have an average of 2.5.  When 10 votes have been cast, 9 of 5 and 1 of 0, then it will have an average of 4.5, so the spoiling vote has less effect.  If 100 votes are cast, 99 at 5 and 1 at 0, then it will have a score of 4.9.

Hope this makes it clear.

It has been a long time now since I did my little bit here, and have done no coding or any other such stuff since. I'm back to being a noob here
