Proposal: Home Automation
I notice that every week or two this happens. They never vote down the +20 or +16, and my intuition tells me that it's doubtful that this is because those two are just so awesome. If there aren't enough +10 questions, they'll nail whichever happens to be +9 at that time.
This is always designed to try to nail 5 questions that are moving us to our goal, we only needed 18 when I checked yesterday, now we need 23.
These can't be targeting the question's content (which might be valid), but always those questions just barely over the threshold. If these people wanted to guide the definition of the SE, that seems doubtful too... there are never more questions entered even though they can write up five of their own.
They might be unassociated, or even the same guy who manages to create a new account every week. I have no way of telling.
I'm not condoning strategic positive voting either, but it will take at least one more supporter's worth of upvotes just to counter-act this... if we only get one or two of those per week, they could keep it from going to the next stage indefinitely... which seems like it might be happening, we've long since had the requisite number of followers.
