I clicked the upvote button on this question, and the vote count did not increase! Oh well. Then I clicked the upvote button again, to undo my upvote, but a message box told me that I had voted on the question 8 minutes ago! This was wrong, but oh well. It's just an upvote.
So I posted my answer, and refreshed the page. But then I saw this!
Impossible! Unless, of course, someone downvoted the question! But I had pressed the upvote button almost a second after loading the page, and the question was only viewed 12 times!
Was there a mystical force of darkness that interfered with my question, or did someone just happen to click the downvote button just as I upvoted?
