Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Just thought it was weird that there's an extra minus sign in the tooltip when the suggested synonym has a negative vote. When you hover over a synonym with a negative vote, it reads:

total votes (when a synonym gets a score of --2 it is automatically declined)

Rather than risk vote-inflation on such an important and highly-used part of the system, it seems that Boolean arithmetic is used to calculate vote totals for synonyms. – cdeszaq Jan 25 '12 at 19:54

Better late than never... This will be fixed in the next build.
