This is what you don't seem to understand. No system based strictly on statistical analysis is robust enough to withstand deliberate human tampering. You can cite all the theorems you want, but if there is no significant, reliable penalty to gaming the system, the system will be gamed.

At my job, I often tell people to "think like a thief" to prevent petty theft. Gonna throw that at you and ask you to "think like a goon." Try to think of ways to hack your own proposal.
