| ||Ask HN: What's going on with Reddit's notation system?|

I'm new to Reddit (always had an unjustified bad opinion about this social network). I've started writing more articles on Medium and trying to get more views/followers by posting them to the relevant sub-reddits.
That said, I don't understand how the notation system works. Every time I hit refresh the number of upvote changed. Even if I hit refresh every half second.
Are there just so many people that downvote and upvote (almost 10s of downvotes AND upvotes per second??) or is that a dark pattern to make you believe there is something happening?
