I saw a question just being added to the site when refreshing the newest actions at the landing page of SP.SE. Once I opened the question, it immediately had 3 votes although the question had been asked 2 minutes ago.
This doesn't go against laws of physics, but - fellow SharePoint.stackexchangers - we all know this is really, really abnormal. In fact to me this is so unusual, that I'm ready to judge the votes as fake votes.
What should we do in situations like this? Fake votes, if being used, are obviously unfair way to e.g. promote one's question or to obtain some reputation which in the end could be even beneficial for an individual in the enterprise world.
