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

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
up vote 2 down vote accepted

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.
