A suggestion on bot invasion

Recently the group BLACKPINK released it’s new LP “Born Pink”, and to the surprise of nobody it’s full of bot accounts giving it a rating of 100. The album’s recent reviews are constituted of 90% recently made accounts with no profile picture, generic usernames and only one rating and review, repeating the same phrase over and over, always giving the album an 100. This is happening as I write this, and of the 380 ratings the album has at the moment, maybe 70 or more of those are from bot accounts.
To fight that, why not make it so recently made accounts’ ratings can’t influence an album user score until they reach 25 ratings or 2 weeks of age? Or both?
