What's actually happening from the screenshot is marking it unhelpful, changing your mind and UN-marking as unhelpful, repeat. That's a legitimate activity the first few times, though a little wasteful to log. The UI should clarify its behavior so some user doesn't repeatedly click thinking she is plus-3'ing or minus-4'ing some brilliant/awful feedback. For example, tooltip on the icon could show [Click to un-mark as unhelpful] or [Undo your marking as helpful], AFT could immediately give feedback showing the action, etc.

There's no reliable way to be certain that an anonymous user has up/down-voted already, so it could theoretically still occur with anon users, since we rely on cookies for this.
This was a problem with the javascript however, which resulted in quite a decent amount of consecutive up/down-votes like this. This problem has already been solved for awhile now though.
