I received a run of 14 upvotes for my 14 highest ranking answers yesterday, at virtually the same time. Today 9 of the votes were expunged. Even so, that leaves me with 5 upvotes that seem too good to be true (that is, not earned by the usual system of carefully considered one-by-one voting).
The automated explanation for the removal of the 9 upvotes very politely reassured me that everything was being taken care of, skullduggery was not suspected, etc.; but I wonder whether (1) I should have reported the run of upvotes to someone in the EL&U administration as soon as I noticed them, and (2) whether the remaining 5 serial upvotes not yet stripped out of my current total constitute some sort of threshold acceptable windfall (or a nice parting gift or something of that nature), or whether they too should be retracted—and perhaps will be in the fullness of time.
Can anyone clarify the responsibilities of a beneficiary of serial upvoting who would like to be a (reasonably) good citizen about this type of thing, especially in the event that (as in my case) the automatic retraction of the upvotes covered only part of the total bonanza? Thanks!
