What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

On my answer to a recent question here in meta it shows a score of 6. But if you click the vote count to split it, it shows +8/-3. (5)

This happens every time I reload the page.

It's pointing out the same bug I guess. But You would never find it by searching for anything related to the issue. – jjnguy May 28 '10 at 18:30
Hmm, so someone was offended by that answer...oops. – jjnguy May 28 '10 at 18:30
Oh, definitely, it is very hard to find that post when these issues come up. Which is probably why it gets asked about often. I've almost reached to the point where I should just favorite the post, instead of hunting down...voter's profile page. – Grace Note May 28 '10 at 18:33

That's because it's been flagged offensive, which incurs a temporary -1.

Spam/Offensive and other automatic vote types behave differently now, in a way that presents correctly with vote counts.
