I've been following this particular proposal as I am rather intersted in it : http://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/6433/healthcare-it
And I noticed today some fishy activity, 35 users have joined in the last 24 hours with exactly 51 rep. Only 12 of those users have set their profilenames, none of them have pictures, and the rest are user#####.
While it's very possible that someone is spreading the word-of-mouth about this proposal (great!) it also seems equally likely that someone has found a way to sock-puppet the proposal's follower count.
What's up with this?
(I'm sorry if the
discussion tag is incorrect, I wasn't sure exactly which of the required tags was a best fit)
