I think someone may have set the parameters controlling serial voting detection a little awry.
Today, I got a notification that 10 rep had been deducted because someone had been serially upvoting my posts. However, my current history here consists of:
- Jul 12, 03:37, association bonus, +100.
- Jul 12, 06:28, upvote on my first question, +10.
- Oct 19, 19:06, reverse serial voting, -10.
Now I suppose you could technically argue that it's a suspicious pattern that 100% of all my upvotes came from a single account.
But I'm not sure you can intelligently call something serial behaviour when there's only been a single occurrence. Otherwise, every murderer would be a serial killer :-)
It'd be interesting to know the rationale behind the decision. I'm not asking for the rep to be reinstated, I don't really care about it other than having enough to do certain things on the site (which, on this site, is really just asking the occasional question).
I've tagged this
bugas that seemed to be the most appropriate from the defaults given, but it may not actually be a bug (apologies in advance if that's the case), we'll have to wait and see.
