How does the SO voter fraud detection mechanism work?

In stackoverflow, when in a day i get huge number of votes from a single user then the votes are automatically rolled back the next day. Is it an automatic system that if number of votes from a single user goes high then all the votes are stripped off, or is there a moderator for this?

Okay, so who is and why shouldn't we consider him a sockpuppet and merge your two accounts? – Won't Jun 21 '11 at 14:29
He is a developer friend of mine and that's not my account. – Jayesh Jun 21 '11 at 19:34

This happens via an automated system, our moderators will only clear votes in the case of sock puppeting type situations, where a large portion of votes were earned illegitimately.
