- A better serial voting trap 1 answer
In the past few days, somebody has been randomly downvoting several of my questions.
I know SO has an automated script that detects this kind of actions using a threshold, but sometimes trolls have too much time in their hands.
I'd like to propose a way to deal with this (and, potentially, other threats): a new kind of flag that applies to a user account instead of a post. In this case, a "mass downvote" flag.
Moderators could then look at a list of downvoted questions along with a (anonymized?) list of voting users to determine if the target account is the victim of trolling, enabling them to reverse the votes and/or take disciplinary action.
...Of course I'm open to other, completely different solutions.
