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

Possible Duplicates:
Wrong score for answer? (1-1=1)

Because it has been flagged as spam or offensive which adds a temporary -1 from the community user.

(if the threshold is not reached, the downvote from community is aged away and disappears)
