That was quite a new question, yet, got a lot of views and votes very fast, then it just died all of sudden and nobody watched it anymore. I barely finished writing my comment when the traffic already died and is now completely dead, and nobody is going to read my comment anymore (which I would like to get an answer too).
So how did that happen? It just seems weird to me, the question itself wasn't that special, and the solution was simply disgusting and the 76 votes worth answer itself wasn't very clearly written. I've seen better questions/answers with less votes given, and worser questions with more traffic/discussion, here it just all died suddenly. So what happened? Just got lucky? Or cheating? Or I simply didn't catch the awesome point of that so awesome answer... Maybe someone can explain what is so good in that answer, to a dummy like me? It just isn't worth 76 upvotes IMO. I just don't get it.
Every now and then I see these high-voted questions, and I always wonder, how do they get votes so much. Is that question shared via social media or something?
I suspect that once the votes reach some limit, people will start upvoting without thinking more, and upvoting generates more upvoting and traffic, and so on, and once all the non-thinkers are spent, the traffic just dies straight to a wall. Are there any evidence of this happening? Just a theory, don't take it personally. Still, it's a mystery how a bad question can get its first N votes to get the chain reaction started.
