What is serial voting and how does it affect me?

There is a series of sudden downvotes made continuously even to my replies/answers (even when the answers were marked as the "correct" anwser).

I know someone is doing it intentionally. What is going on?

@Yannis Hmm, you're right. That should normally have been caught. Still a dupe, but worth some attention. –  Bart Jan 29 '13 at 9:55

I can't find anything suspicious. I may have to check this with the higher-ups. –  BoltClock's a Unicorn Jan 29 '13 at 10:01

There is possibly something wrong.

This answer: Get slug and write content with dashes has one upvote and a downvote. But on your reputation tab it shows two downvotes and a single upvote. So maybe some votes are counted twice?

Sometimes there are strange voting patterns. But don't let them discourage you. –  Toon Krijthe Jan 29 '13 at 10:10

@Sk8terboi - During the last couple of days I have got several surprise votes (upvotes, fortunately) on post from early 2011. Perhaps some archeologists are at work? Odd things happen. –  Bo Persson Jan 29 '13 at 12:27

The accepted answer on What is serial voting and how does it affect me? provides a very good explanation to it. I think you might be the victim of the third section of it, When does serial downvoting occur?

As now the 24 hours have been passed and no action is still taken, you could flag one of your posts for moderator attention. they could very well handle the issue.

No point in copy pasting an answer from a question that has already been identified as a possible duplicate. Also, he has waited for at least 24 hours, yesterday's downvotes weren't reversed. –  Yannis Jan 29 '13 at 10:10
    
@Yannis removed copied content. –  Sahil Mahajan Mj Jan 29 '13 at 10:16
