This morning, I logged into one of my accounts today to check on my Tribunal stats and discovered that one of several auto-punish experiments finally paid off. To my delight, after 756 consecutive Punish votes, one account has officially joined the ranks of Riot's official top 1000 Tribunal judges. Currently, I am the 956th highest ranked member of the Tribunal in North America after having read exactly 0 cases and having used a macro program to automate the voting process while I'm not even at my computer.
For those wanting proof, please see the above linked Imgur album containing screenshots not only of my Justice Review stats, but also of my voting record for my last 400 cases (note: Imgur is **** and managed to double upload some images).
I make this post knowing full well that any marginally competent Riot employee can identify the account and ban it. However, in taking this (small) risk, I am demonstrating how much of the sham the Tribunal is, and how automated bot and troll voting can not only affect the outcomes of hundreds of cases, but even be recognized by Riot as one of the "best" judges in the entire system. The fact that I have roughly 82% accuracy without having read a single case is a sad attestation to the incompetence permeating the Tribunal system at all levels, from engineering to oversight.
EDIT: Just realized a had a Pardon mixed in with my voting a few weeks ago--must have clicked the wrong button. Whoops.
How did you push the wrong button if you're using a macro program?
Also, you should display the results of your OTHER automated accounts, because that is crucial information. If you have five programs running this and the other four are currently at 50% accuracy (which they shouldn't be, because the average number of punished Tribunal cases should be skewed toward 80 or 90% punish), then clearly your logic is flawed.
HOWEVER, the premise of the experiment is sound, and the results are expected; the issue is that you are not doing the Tribunal's job, because the purpose of the Tribunal is actually to weed out those who deserve to be pardoned (otherwise, a stack of reports would simply result in a punishment).
Also, Riot, in the interest of potential triggers, would you be kind enough to change the OP's forum name or remove his account? "Inappropriate Name" doesn't even begin to describe it.
