I came across a question that has:

  • 184 views over 6 months
  • On a very specific and convoluted topic (I suspect not many people have come across this issue)

Yet it has 9 upvotes and 3 favourites.

What should we do if we suspect vote manipulation?

To me that level of viewing and voting does not arouse any suspicion of a voting irregularity.

Most likely it was either shared on Twitter/Facebook/etc, appeared in a GIS SE newsletter, or reached the Hot Network Questions.

If you are suspicious you can always flag for a moderator to investigate, but I think the evidence presented would need to be much stronger before I would spend much time processing such a flag.
