A question was asked on Stack Overflow. Are password reset links that don't expire a security risk?

I marked it as a favourite, because I thought it was interesting. I also voted it +1. Then I flagged it for migration to IT Security. When it arrived here, I marked it as a favourite again, and voted it +1 again.

Surely it should have already been marked as a favourite, and should have already had a vote from me locked in? I already have accounts on SO and on ITSec.

This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for information security professionals.

I'm pretty certain that favourites get cleared - not sure on votes. I'll have a scout round meta.SO to see if there is an answer there – Rory Alsop Nov 20 '12 at 18:31
I think down votes are removed. Upvotes stay, as we can see on question migrated from StackOverflow, with often have a very high number of votes on poor answers. – Hendrik Brummermann Nov 20 '12 at 18:50
