Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

One way would be to fire up Chrome, open the JavaScript Console and type $(".vote-up-off").click() and press enter.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

a down vote with no comment is worthy of such comments. – hunter Aug 9 '10 at 20:01
Please read this link. It deals (pretty comprehensively, I hope) with why downvoters are not obligated to comment. – devinb Aug 9 '10 at 20:07
$(".OP").Downvote() – Won't Aug 9 '10 at 20:09
downvotes have a different meaning on Meta than they have on SO. – Pëkka Aug 9 '10 at 20:18
Have you tried usi... oh wait. – Andrew Aug 10 '10 at 3:16

Regardless of whether or not it is feasible, this (self-created) feature has no valid use cases.

You should not be upvoting (or downvoting) a post unless you have read the post. And it would take a fraction of a second to vote on the posts as you read through them. There is no reason to need to vote on them all at once.

Isn't there some underlying malicious capabilities of a little jQuery code and using some OpenID site integration? For instance couldn't someone create hundreds of accounts that are linkable to StackOverflow and simply crawl and downvote all over the site and take away people's precious points? – hunter Aug 9 '10 at 19:54
@hunter. Well, no, because those accounts would all need 100 reputation in order to be able to downvote. – devinb Aug 9 '10 at 19:55
Don't you get 100 points by linking to another StackExchange site? – hunter Aug 9 '10 at 19:56
I just started using this site and I have 115 points (would be 120 if someone didn't down vote this question) – hunter Aug 9 '10 at 19:57
You can only link your account if you have 200 rep on at least one site, and then you can only associate one account per site. So, assuming that each user only has 100 reputation (that they got from associating) they would be able to cast 1 downvote each unless they fall below the rep threshold. – devinb Aug 9 '10 at 19:58
I voted your comment up with $(".comment-up-off").click() but you're right, won't allow more, but it did show me a bunch of pretty pop ups at once. – hunter Aug 9 '10 at 20:05
Yes, as "FrustratedWithFormsDes" mentioned, there is a limit on how many comments you can upvote in succession. But you can vote on all posts at once if you want to. – devinb Aug 9 '10 at 20:09

Except you can't because there are limits on how quickly you can vote (with cool-downs if you exceed it - or does that only apply to voting on comments?), and how many vots in a 24 hr period you can have, so eventually you'd have to wait for tomorrow to do the same thing.

That only applies to comments. You can vote on questions and answers as fast as you can; but you are limited to 30 votes a day – quantumSoup Aug 9 '10 at 19:39
yeah, it works. If there's a 30 vote limit then I guess it couldn't get too malicious... unless you had n number of accounts. – hunter Aug 9 '10 at 19:48
$(".vote-up-off,.comment-up-off").click() – hunter Aug 9 '10 at 19:49
