Very close to 1m30s between each. Questions only. Three at a time (though they could go one more without triggering the script..). It does look suspicious.

I suspect a serial voter rather than a bug. That said, I can't imagine what they gain by making you look good. I don't think it's you—unless you posted on meta as a carefully crafted misdirect!

  • phony? Nope :) The up votes are recorded in the database, so it can be verified. Commented May 12, 2010 at 7:24

    oh, and notice that 2 questions are on both cases. A different account must be used if there is a serial voter. Commented May 12, 2010 at 7:29
  • @Nick: Never said it was phony.

  • @Nick: Ah, that was just some (apparently poor) humor suggesting the votes were fraudulent (but not phony :P). (E.g. if you had you upvoted yourself from a sock puppet account.)

  • Sorry, but 1:16, 1:28, 0:27 and 0:36 are not "very close to 1:30 each".

  • @RegDwight: You're right, it's worse than I saw at first glance. Why did you quote "very close to 1:30 each"?
