One vote can be a perfect circle! But only if you bug the system and vote on your own post.

plus I don't think we are going to intervene in a single vote

The standard just mandates that the type of sizeof(expr) is the same type as std::size_t. There is no mandate that using sizeof(expr) makes the name std::size_t available and since std::size_t just names one of the the built-in integral types there isn't really a problem.

+44 answer, pretty trivial, to LRiO question.

7:24 PM
if you find evidence, then flag it we'll take a look. But chatting in the same room and answering a question, receiving an upvote doesn't mean it's a ring.

@bjb568 they are users on the same tag - cross voting would be somewhat expected as long as it isn't completely targeted. Plus they both are long-term/high-rep users, the likelihood they have crossed paths on questions is entirely possible

Wow, I said gross three times on the same wall

@bluefeet I'd say there's still a 7% chance of vote ring
