Today I flagged several comments on my old deleted question. ~2h later I got downvotes for several old, downvoted questions. Is this some sort of serial downvoter?

    I recently downvoted your "Honeypot for hunting browser zero-days" question. When you first asked the question, I voted to close it, but didn't downvote it because it wasn't a bad question (just not on topic). After your latest edits though (which attempted to answer it despite being closed and also aimed some insults at the people who closed it), I decided to downvote it. All that to say, it doesn't surprise me that it got downvotes. A serial downvoter is certainly not the only explanation for such things. Commented Sep 20, 2019 at 13:59

If there is a serial downvoter, then the automatic systems in StackExchange will deal with it.

  • So, were the downvotes spread out over multiple days? Your screenshot shows a single day.

  • schroeder♦, I don't know, I detected it just today. Would be interesting to see if it continues in the next days. It least I started a topic and now can use it as reference if it continues. Commented Sep 15, 2019 at 18:41

    @notyourdolly So, your idea is that someone is targetting you and downvoting a little each day (and that the votes are not legitimate)? That's a specific leap to make with, admittedly, no evidence, and evidence that could easily be explained through a non-malicious interpretation. Even if we could get evidence, there would be no way for us to determine if the voting was legitimate or not.

    Only mods can see mod flags, so there is no correlation between your flags and the downvotes.
