Upvoting based on celebrity, too many upvotes (“excessive rep slurping”)
I'm a bit confused. On this question SQLite: execute case-sensitive LIKE query on a specific query, the question was upvoted once in a minute or so.
An answered was then posted by a user with high reputation (50k+) explaining how to accomplish a case-insensitive query. Understandable mistake, as I didn't provide an example (I later did).
Their answer then (within seconds, or instantly) received an upvote, even though the answer was opposite of what I asked. The user later deleted their answer after I mentioned the question is about case-sensitive.
Do high reputation users automatically receive an upvote on their answers or the sort?
