Steps to reproduce:

N/A


Actual results:

MandoAtef ( https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/user/848037 ) is in the top 10 list for contributors. He only has 1 question and 300 and some helpful votes 3/4 times which bumped him up which shouldn't because it was not helpful at all. 


Expected results:

He should not be in the list and should be investigated as well.

Sometime in between 5/17/13 (When Liz left her comment) & 5/23/13 (the day I noticed), I realized MandoAtef was gone from the Top 10! Yay!

He most likely expired out of the karma system. Or possibly someone did something manually to get him out of the system. Although Ricky says it wasn't him.

He'd literally been there for about 3 months (mid Feb-late May). I believe he's a innocent victim caught up in a vote abuse attack. He along w/ a few other legitimate contributors like Tyler and John99 had ~300 positive votes on each of their posts in that thread. Most likely the spammer was testing the abuse in a random thread. The attack range was from 2/13/13 to 2/17/13.

I'm going to file a bug to see if we can implement a way to expire users out of the karma system manually by either a option to clear votes on individual posts or clear karma points per user.

The user is still active so his account wasn't removed, he probably did expire out of the karma system.
