How's that? You don't currently get tens or hundreds of votes from
non-players, do you?

I'll clarify: you fill out a form and it outputs a text file. You then
send that file in an e-mail to the Forum. It simply makes formatting the
vote e-mails easier - and it puts them in a consistent format, so that
perhaps a script on your end would be able to process them.

If some random person starts sending too many messages, that's spamming
the Forum, and should be dealt with appropriately.
