I have been keeping a close eye on the voting and weighting in the last 48 hours on all/top over on eddit, I have seen 2-4 week old posts that went dead suddenly get 3+k votes overnight. See capture of the page from last night http://archive.is/Sd116
So yeah looks like the admins are doubling down on giving the fuck you to anyone they dont like, the only way for stale posts to do this is to adjust the category vote weighting.
Take a look at this capture of all/top today https://sli.mg/oplhaF
But wait there's even more - I had to use sli.mg for the capture to see what was being displayed to me personally as I noticed that when I took an archive.is of the page the votes were different AGAIN - http://archive.is/Nf3NU - this and sli.mg shot taken at same time
So logged in users are having their view counts and content altered to hide the stuff they don't want you seeing.
Im convinced if I unsubscribe to the donald and others this magic vote shit would stop.
