    No, the title is not an excerpt from Brass Eye's episode on drugs...

    It seeems to me that someone or some group is very consciously going round upvoting questions which have been closed and downvoted as off-topic, presumably on the grounds that these have often been asked by people who just didn't read the FAQ but meant no malice. Or perhaps someone strongly believes that negative vote totals for new users are overly censorious/unfriendly/exclusive/elitist/reactionary?

    Is this just my imagination?


    The most annoying thing about stackexchange's reputation system is that downvoting typically adds reputation rather than subtracting it, because typically someone will upvote to bring it back to 0.
