I just got an interesting message that there had been maliceous voting on my account. Minus almost 6000 reputation.

Interesting question was if I perhaps created an additional account to vote for myself?

For God's sake I posted this! Please tell me if this is a joke. You cannot take 6000 reputation from someone and expect him or her to stay around. I never ever did a single maliceous act here. In short:

I am paying for a crippled detection system

Count me out, I am off.

    A.B. and Fabby lost much more ;-) There are not many people who wrote many good answers. And it is not surprising that they upvoted each other without any cheating.

    Jacob, this is not that important though. Take it easy, even if it is not fair.

    This doesn't sound like serial voting to me; it sounds like a glitch. Commented Jun 6, 2016 at 20:35
  • @Pilot6 Thanks, I appreciate it a lot. I really think however this is fair, and really, it breaks my motivation completely, and not even so much for the points; it demasks the system. Commented Jun 6, 2016 at 20:36

    Every system has glitches from time to time. The motivation is not only points. For me it is not. I post more at forums where there are no points at all.

    The funny thing is reverting accepts from random users.

  • @Pilot6 absolutely, but where the system's psychology is built on the Pavlov- green candy, a major demotivation on a major push down shouldn't be a surprise. Commented Jun 6, 2016 at 20:40
  • Is it possible that some user who had passed out a lot of votes deleted his/her account?

  • @anonymous2 It is not related to deleted posts at all.

  • @anonymous2 no, I got a notification why the minus was. As mentioned, with a nice question if I perhaps used an additional account for upvoting me? The words in my mind that pop up then are no good here. Nor anywhere else. Commented Jun 6, 2016 at 20:42

    @JacobVlijm We all know these people who lost the points today. They are not the same person. And they are not even friendly to each other in some cases ;-)
