looks like a bot or something is clobbering ZoomWin's ratings

Charles E Campbell Jr
Hello:

I don't check all that often, but I note that ZoomWin's ratings have
plummeted by 473 points since Feb 22 this year (on vim.sf.net).
In the past, I've pulled plugins that have experienced bot attacks like
this, as their ratings never seem to be restored, and it obviously
discourages folks from trying the plugin out.
If and when I do pull ZoomWin, you'll still be able to find it on my
website (http://www.drchip.org/astronaut/vim/index.html#ZOOMWIN).

FYI: with ZoomWin, a ctrl-w o  will "zoom into" the current window (ie.
it will become the only window), and a subsequent ctrl-w o  will restore
the former display.

Regards,
Chip Campbell

Looks like a sequence of "-1" votes got added in a small time range on
April 9 and 10.  IP addresses are all over the place.  Weird.

I tried to remove those rows from the table, but I think something went
wrong, it looks like all votes for the script were deleted. But the
displayed count didn't actually change.
