The wording of the learn more for Voting corrected refers specifically and exclusively to multiple votes:

When a single user continually votes (up or down) on many of your posts within a short period of time, the system considers these votes to be invalid and removes them. This could happen for a variety of reasons, such as a user finding a user's great answer and visiting all of their posts to upvote them, or a user getting into an argument with another user and downvoting their posts indiscriminately in revenge. No matter the cause, this sort of systematic targeted voting is not considered normal behavior and the system will not allow it.

However on 19/10/21 I had just one upvote corrected, which does not fit this explanation or the definition of serial voting (abuse).

  • Should the wording be amended to reflect that corrections can be as a result of singular as well as multiple votes?

If we choose to continue using this process to invalidate mass voting sprees like this, we will find a way to clarify this possible case in the help center.
