This answer on StackOverflow shows a score of 1 right now:

When I click the score to show total up and down vote counts, it shows (+1 / -1), so I would expect total score to be 0:

I refreshed several times and I can reproduce it with 3 different browsers.

I found this bug (Voting on a question after having clicked the upvotes/downvotes count will display an incorrect value), but I did not vote for this answer.

Can you reproduce this? Anyone seen that before?

This can happen as the score is denormalized.

It gets fixed (now) two ways:

  1. Someone votes on it, which checks the db again.

  2. The daily scripts fix all scores which don't match the db.

What sort of scenario could create this, though? –  Phoshi May 1 '10 at 15:02
@Phoshi: I would imagine maybe if the account that voted was deleted –  AnonJr May 1 '10 at 16:09
@Downvoter: Thanks, that would actually explain it! This behavior is, well, surprising... –  Peter Lang May 3 '10 at 18:12
