I just noticed this on the Astronomy proposal on Area 51:
This is wrong on so many fronts:
- I don't have anywhere near 150k network rep
- It shows to other people (I've checked this) that I do
- It cheats others out of their rightful place in the total reputation list.
I honestly don't know how/why it happened, but I do know I don't have 150k rep. About 30 minutes before it went to 150k, I noticed it was at 148k, if it helps anything.
As mizo pointed out in the comments, the 150k seems to be the combination of my rep + my two referred users:
125831 (Rory Alsop) + 5673 (RhysW) + 18472 (Undo) = 149976
