Who or what is Vote Fairy?

A figure of speech. You know how you have a limited number of votes (for upvoting and downvoting nodes) each day, but once per day they get replenished? There's a once-per-day process (a cron job or some similar thing) that looks at each user in the database and sets the votes left number up to the correct number, based on the user's level. Some people like to call this the "Vote Fairy". Unlike some of the others, a user account is not really needed for this. (NodeReaper needs one because somebody has to own the reaped-node placeholder nodes; im2 needs one so you can /msg it, among other reasons; Anonymous Monk needs one because, again, somebody has to own his nodes. But the Vote Fairy doesn't need to exist as a user, it was just somebody's idea of an interesting joke.) I was a little surprised that root was not included in the poll.
