Very close to 1m30s between each. Questions only. Three at a time (though they could go one more without triggering the script..). It does look suspicious.

I suspect a serial voter rather than a bug. That said, I can't imagine what they gain by making you look good. I don't think it's you—unless you posted on meta as a carefully crafted misdirect!

phony? Nope :) The up votes are recorded in the database, so it can be verified. –  Nick Dandoulakis May 12 '10 at 7:24

oh, and notice that 2 questions are on both cases. A different account must be used if there is a serial voter. –  Nick Dandoulakis May 12 '10 at 7:29
    
@Nick: Never said it was phony. –  Gnome May 12 '10 at 7:41
    
"... a carefully crafted misdirect" <--- –  Nick Dandoulakis May 12 '10 at 7:47
    
@Nick: Ah, that was just some (apparently poor) humor suggesting the votes were fraudulent (but not phony :P). (E.g. if you had you upvoted yourself from a sock puppet account.) –  Gnome May 12 '10 at 7:48
    
sock puppet account? oops, you busted me! –  Nick Dandoulakis May 12 '10 at 7:58
    
Quick, someone search the user DB for Nick A, Nick B, Nick C and Nick E! –  Pops May 12 '10 at 14:30
    
Sorry, but 1:16, 1:28, 0:27 and 0:36 are not "very close to 1:30 each". –  ЯegDwight Sep 11 '10 at 13:52
    
@RegDwight: You're right, it's worse than I saw at first glance. Why did you quote "very close to 1:30 each"? –  Gnome Sep 11 '10 at 14:15
