This is because you violate the rules and regulation given by SO


Since You have violated the voting rules and regulation of Stackoverflow

Take a look at this

What is serial voting and how does it affect me? enter image description here


I think this is to prevent someone spammingly upvote everything he sees on SO. Suppose someone wants to get more reputation he can simply apply for another account and build enough reputation, then upvote every answer of main account. That way the main account can get thousands of reputation that way. Just to point out that reputation building is SLOW process :)


Vote reversal as a result of voting fraud will also return lost or gained reputation.
