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

So today I was awarded upwards of 200 points from previous posts within about an hour, so I figured glitch. And sure enough, points were removed. Anyone know what the heck is going on?

Someone went on a (up)voting rampage on your posts. It was caught by the vote fraud scripts and removed. End of story. – Jeff Mercado Feb 19 '12 at 3:16
up vote 7 down vote accepted

Sounds like someone went vote-happy on you and the votes got cleared out by the voting fraud detection script.

It's unfortunate when that happens for legitimate upvotes, but it also serves a valuable purpose of removing similarly cast downvotes or upvotes cast to artificially inflate someone's reputation.
