Vote tally display intermittent

My node Last best chance to rename "Perl6" which pointed out a blog post elsewhere, predictably garnered a number of downvotes. For most of yesterday and today the reputation of the node has been displayed to me as '10' with 'no significant downvotes.' Yesterday once in the evening I saw it showing (16+, 6-). Is "significant downvotes" variable? Is six downvotes sometimes or always considered insignificant? Is this intermittent behavior a bug?


The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

    The background is explained at Display of Node Reputation. It doesn't give the precise formula, though.

    ($q=q:Sq=~/;[c](.)(.)/;chr(-||-|5+lengthSq)`"S|oS2"`map{chr |+ord }map{substrSq`S_+|`|}3E|-|`7**2-3:)=~y+S|`+$1,++print+eval$q,q,a,

      Yes I'm familiar with that, but it appears that the behavior varies, when the numbers are unchanged.

      The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

        Why do you think the numbers are unchanged? It could have been 14-4 or 15-5 before ...

        So long Rata
