Serial Downvoting Victim

I've recently had a series of 5-6 downvotes on SO, and so I've searched here and found Picking on a user (downvote abuse) question.

The answer there suggest to flag one post explaining the situation and wait for a mod to take a look.

When I tried that, my flag was declined:

declined - flags should only be used to make moderators aware of content that requires their intervention

So what can I do if someone abuses downvotes against me?

If it's been less than 24 hrs, wait and see if the script that detects these things will correct it. If not, and it's still going on, email the team directly. Edit: As genesis points out below, there hasn't been any abnormal downvoting, just bounties. –  jonsca Oct 25 '11 at 11:21

It has already been said many times before.

Wait 36 hours for relevant script. If nothing happens, mail team@stackoverflow.com

I see no abuse on your account, so that's probably the reason of declining the flag.

Actually after I flagged it got removed, so I guess someone just tested or something. I just wanted to know what to do in case of. btw, RikudoSennin == Truth now :) –  Second Rikudo Oct 25 '11 at 17:55
