    Are you trying to find the question ban threshold on Meta? – Oded Sep 10 '13 at 13:42

    yes that is possible (within the 5 minute window), why would you want to do that? – Richard Tingle Sep 10 '13 at 13:42

    Congratulations are due. You have managed to get yourself question banned on Meta, a feat few have managed. – Oded Sep 10 '13 at 13:45
  • If (as you suggested in your previous question) you want to get meta upvotes then consider asking a somewhat more constructive question. Am I allowed to annoy other users isn't really a great question – Richard Tingle Sep 10 '13 at 13:45

    The arc of your questions on Meta, moving from "how can I become a moderator" to "How can I get banned" to actually doing so is... not encouraging. – Wooble Sep 10 '13 at 13:47
  • @Oded To mark this momentous occasion, a badge should be created called the "david", for getting question banned on meta. – Mansfield Sep 10 '13 at 13:48

    @Wooble actually, it's quite impressive. Daunted by the difficulty his initial challenge presented, he then set more reasonable goals, and was able to accomplish them. Real success story, when you look at it the right way. – Billy Mailman Sep 10 '13 at 13:49
  • @Mansfield - [status-declined]. Badges are there to encourage certain behaviors. And getting q-banned is not something we would like many to achieve, on Meta or otherwise. – Oded Sep 10 '13 at 13:49
  • @Wooble - are you suggesting the OP became a moderator before getting banned? – Oded Sep 10 '13 at 13:51
  • He did that in 5 days. A new world's record! I think I held it previously at 35 days... :oP – Johnny Bones Sep 10 '13 at 13:51

    Obligatory (but waaaaay too late): How do I participate in Meta Stack Overflow and not die trying? – LittleBobbyTables Sep 10 '13 at 13:54

    @LBT The next time we should provide that to users before they participate. Not once they are on life-support.... ;) – Bart Sep 10 '13 at 13:55

    @Oded I know. T'was a bad joke :) – Mansfield Sep 10 '13 at 14:38

It is possible to do, unless your vote is locked (which happens 5mins after a vote has been casted and is up until there is an edit to the post).

It will upvote, then "un-upvote" then downvote. Then "un-downvote" then upvote... and so on. It's pretty straight forward. It won't stack the votes.
