Chatter API returning negative value for total likes

Hi,

 

I am currently working with the REST API for Chatter, and while debugging I mistakenly called the DELETE method twice for a particular post.

 

When I retrieved the post again, the number of likes is now negative (initial value was 1). Is this to be expected? The reply I got for the feed item contains the following object for likes:

"likes":{
"total":-1,
"previousPageUrl":null,
"currentPageUrl":"/services/data/v24.0/chatter/feed-items/0D590000008aruhCAA/likes",
"nextPageUrl":null,
"likes":[
]
}

 As you can see, the likes array is empty, meaning no one likes the item. But the total value is -1. Is this really supposed to happen?

 

(Sorry for the noobish question, just starting out on Chatter. Also, sorry I am not sure on which board this should go.)

 

 

Thanks,

Zarah.
