Serial downvotes in quick succession on all my posts

That is just my opinion but I think somebody keeps downvoting me for no reason.Questions, answer everything.I do not know why.Here is an image of my reputation tab

in approximately 1 or 2 minutes I guess

I have several upvotes with those answers and questions, and some of them are my solutions to my questions.

I don't really care about the reputation so much, but I really want to know my fault so I can correct it.

Any ideas about anything wrong with those questions and answer will be appreciated and I will immediately edit them.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Somebody doesn't like you answering your own questions. But it's perfectly OK to do so. – Robert Harvey Aug 22 '11 at 21:42
One for the question and one for the answer as much as I understand. @Chris – Bastardo Aug 22 '11 at 21:43
Unrelated - you are the first person I see whose profile text says moderator removed. I can't help but wonder what was in there? – Pëkka Aug 22 '11 at 21:43
This looks like somebody and their sock puppet doing the voting though – Pëkka Aug 22 '11 at 21:43
@Johnny Yeah, I just realized that. I would tend to agree with Robert's guess. – Chris Frederick Aug 22 '11 at 21:44
thanks Mr.Harvey I am not really that passionate about answerng my own question.It is just I had a problem and had no solutions then I found it out myself and asnwered for others, hoping it can help them.Thanks for your support. – Bastardo Aug 22 '11 at 21:51
@Eat it was basically not professional. – Bastardo Aug 22 '11 at 21:53
@Johnny Don't get the wrong idea: it is entirely acceptable to answer your own questions. Some people do prefer that you wait about a day before posting your own answer, though, just to give others a chance to provide theirs. – Chris Frederick Aug 22 '11 at 23:27
@Chris thanks Chris, I usually wait till I find a solution and that generally takes more than one day but I will be more careful about that subject if I have to answer my own question again. – Bastardo Aug 22 '11 at 23:46
up vote 5 down vote accepted

It happens all the time. There must be a hate voter out there. Not to worry. There's a nightly script that will recalc your rep. back again. If you still have the problem tomorrow, post here and a moderator will take care of it.

thank you I will do that Junkie, cheers. – Bastardo Aug 22 '11 at 21:47
No problem, but next time do a search because there are loads of questions out there about the same issue. – GUI Junkie Aug 22 '11 at 21:51
I know I was just hoping for some suggestions to edit if there were anything wrong with my questions. – Bastardo Aug 22 '11 at 21:54
Actually a moderator would not be able to take care of this, at least i think that's what i've been told when this happened to me the last time... – H.B. Aug 22 '11 at 22:33
@H.B. Mods can check to see if there's been suspicious voting against you, but they can't revoke the votes – Michael Mrozek Aug 22 '11 at 22:50
@Michael, It appears that these downvotes may be sufficiently infrequent (3-4 per day @ apparently different times) to not trigger the recalc. Perhaps a dev could look at it -- should it continue -- as it's only amounted to ~ -20 rep? – M. Tibbits Aug 23 '11 at 1:57
