I've noticed an increase in what looks like random up-voting of my posts over the past few months, and just now had a second reversal of serial up-voting.
I've experienced a(t least one) case of serial downvoting in a different site, but serial upvoting is a new experience for me.
Are other people seeing this as well, or is it just me seeing this?
In the case of votes on my post, might this just be a bit of beginner's enthusiasm, or is "a type of voting fraud" being perpetrated against me here as well, but with the opposite sign?
I'm not a "rep freak" and don't take the number too seriously, and would advocate for a two digit logarithmic display for rep (e.g. mine would be
4.4) in many instances of rep-display SE-wide to help put this in perspective. (Also the point behind this joke about prime numbers)
But since many people do, I thought I'd explore this further.
The plateau between November 2017 and March 2018 appears flat and yet "noisy" because my bounty rate was equal to the upvote rate. I don't know how to plot the cumulative upvoting by itself.
