Unidan is the exception, not the rule. I think that the number of posts and number of competent admins are so out of balance that they can't catch companies like 'HackPR', or even just regular clever people. Maybe they have a few algorithms to catch the really obvious manipulation, but you can work around IP problems with a VPN, work around 'new, no karma' accounts by reposting from a year or two ago, et cetera et cetera.
