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

Strangely high number of upvotes to a self-answered question in a short period of time:

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Looks legit to me. If there was sockpuppeting going on, the question would likely have more than 1 upvote. – Mysticial Sep 23 '12 at 0:06
@Mystical unless that's how he wants you to think. – Aaron Bertrand Sep 23 '12 at 0:29
@Flavious - This is just a bikeshed question. The answer is upvoted by a lot of people thinking "I knew that, good answer". Now closed as a duplicate by those who also knew it had been asked before. – Bo Persson Sep 23 '12 at 9:09

Far as I can tell... someone posted a good question/answer pair. That's all. I'm not turning up any malicious activity on this one.

A single vote on a question and 6 upvotes/1 downvote (at the time of this writing; probably more now that the question has been linked on meta :)) on a good answer within 40 minutes of posting isn't that unusual, or at least one would hope it wouldn't be on a site as popular as Stack Overflow.
