It wouldn't work; as far as I know the total downvotes you are allowed to give is function of your own karma; sockpuppets without karma couldn't downvote, and maintaining three sockpuppets that post enough to get karma (by upvoting each other?) sounds like a pretty non-trivial inconvenience.

So, there is a non-negligible chance of newbie become a future troll reading LW?

4thomblake8yThe 'trivial inconvenience' described the experience for the commenter, not the experience for the stifler. And it's not hard to get karma for sockpuppets - they can all write relatively innocuous comments and upvote each other.

[META] Karma for last 30 days?

by ArisKatsaris 1 min read30th Aug 2012179 comments


Has anyone yet mentioned or reported that for the last couple days, the "karma for last 30 days" is showing zero for everyone? And that we no longer can see the top contributors for the last 30 days either?

Do we have an explanation or estimation for a bugfix on this?
