iTunes Rankings Easily Manipulated

AmberMac: It looks like iTunes doesn't record how many people are actually subscribed to a podcast but rather how many times the button is pressed.  [cut] Anyone can change the results in iTunes by simply clicking on the subscribe button 20 or 50 or 100 times.

Randy: Too funny! I'll be #1 by the end of the day ;-)
