Upvoting based on celebrity, too many upvotes (“excessive rep slurping”)

Maybe this is a hard one, if not impossible, to quantify. But it seems like reputation builds reputation. Or maybe it's just a matter of asking (and answering) the right questions. Thoughts?

Yes. Just ask anyone who has answered the same question Jon Skeet has.

Indeed. My proudest achievement on SO is that I have more votes than Jon Skeet on this question: stackoverflow.com/questions/235025/… Now if I only my answer was marked accepted, my happiness would be complete. –  MrBoJangles Feb 15 '11 at 22:26
