Well, after all it's an exceptional performance. One-off shows like the DreamForce gig or remarkable tour gigs (aka tour/leg openings/closers, shows with a song debut, gigs with a soundboard or Ex Aud recording, etc) are bound to be voted more than others no matter how much time has passed since the show.
So it all comes down to knowing how to use the tool and analyze the data collected. If for any certain song you see three famous shows (for example, 1989-12-31 Dublin, 1993-11-27 Sydney and 2001-09-01 Slane) with 6 votes and then you see an "obscure" show (eg. 1987-11-12 Vancouver) with 2 or 3 votes, that song from that show is probably gonna be a much better performance than the other ones - just less famous.

Exactly. I like to use it as a tool to find shows that have great performances and when a show like dreamforce has a performance like that so heavily voted on when the show is streaming off of a phone or something that night, the other better performances suffer on the list and get pushed out of the top however many each song page shows.
And I don't think that this performance of bullet for example would feature in the top performances if there was no voting for two weeks, the hype would have settled. I can't imagine anyone actually listens to that show with any regularity
