Apparently, the Community user earned the Civic Duty badge.

How the heck did that happen?

If you look at the profile, it has 755 votes as of right now, which is greater than the 300 required for the civic duty badge. How does it get these votes? In it's profile it says "Own downvotes on spam/evil posts that get permanently deleted". I believe the community user may also own the votes (up and down) of accounts that no longer exist.

From it's profile page:

I do things like

  • Own downvotes on spam/evil posts that get permanently deleted
  • Damn, you beat me to it! =P – gnostradamus Jul 16 '09 at 20:13

    That's only the downvotes, somehow it's gaining upvotes too. – Timothy Carter Jul 16 '09 at 20:15
