This question is posted by a new contributor describing an extremely rare situation and although the answers are useful for the OP, hardly anyone else is helped by the questions/answers (I guess - does anyone disagree with me that this is a unique situation?). Still this question has received 535 upvotes as we speak which makes it a top-3 question on the whole site as well as provide the OP with a lot of privileges on this and possible other SE-sites.
Isn't the intention with the voting system that questions that are relevant for a lot of people or situations should end up in the top (and questions/answers covering narrow subjects should just be upvoted by the few persons who are affected by a similar situation)?
And if a new contributor manage to post a question like this, (s)he immediately achieve ≈ top 150 (This users personal page claims his reputation is 891 but doesn't 535 upvotes equal 5350 reputation? Is the number on the personal page updated with a delay?) although (s)he hasn't really contributed anything useful to the site. Is that really desirable?
