Karma spam bot ?

Hello,

I noticed since a few weeks, something or someone gives free karma for no reason. I see Newbies asking a simple question and get 3 karma or more for it :) I had around 160 just one week ago :o. So this can be a problem, when karma will no longer indicate reputation/usefulness :).

What is it and can you stop it?

Up until mid-April I was getting, on average, one karma every two days. Since then it averages about 3 per day.

This has already been reported.

If it ever did . . .
