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

This question already has an answer here:

The highest-voted answer on this question has three votes, and appears above the accepted answer (two votes). I think it's an amusing coincidence that it just so happens to be a Jon Skeet answer. What's going on here? Shouldn't this answer be at the top?
