Well, if a user doesn't log in to vote, they could keep voting for their link.

This is why the various "free" or "open" polls don't work. One college kid with a bunch of friends could pop his program, or link, or whatever to the top of the list really quickly, regardless of value.

With one-vote per ID, you limit that sort of abuse.

This is why my ratings/review system requires log on, and I pretty much dropped support for non-logged in voting. Such anonymous features are another casualty of human natuere and the Internet.
