I just asked a new question, https://softwareengineering.stackexchange.com/questions/300694/exact-php-syntax-for-dependency-injection . When I completed it and the view page loaded, its score was already -1. I'm pretty certain there was not enough time for anyone to downvote it. They would have had to have done so in the moment between me hitting 'Ask', and it loading for me right after that.
Is this a bug? Or is there something about my reputation or the question itself that would make it start out behind?
