I've been the target of serial down voting before, so I'm familiar with the auto-script that will undo it if triggered, but the exact trigger is not publicly known. I'm also familiar with the secrecy of votes in general and that only certain developers can view them under certain circumstances. This seems like a certain circumstance that warrants a look to verify whether there's been a misuse of the SE system.

Here's a snapshot of my current reputation changes. You can see that I down voted on something, then 90 minutes later I received four down votes in a row.

The serial downvotes have been invalidated.

  • Thanks. I appreciate the look into this.

  • The down votes still show in my reputation tab. Should they?

    @fredsbend the votes are invalidated and the rep has been refunded. I will need to check into the specific reason why they still appear in that list.
