My account on Stack Overflow was compromised yesterday. I share a computer, but I have no idea who did it. I realized, that yesterday, someone has made derogatory comments toward a fellow moderator.
I appologize that this has happened on my account. I have secured my Google Account (I use it to sign in to SO), and I would like to know whom do I contact to resolve this issue.
I noticed that I also got a huge amount if downvotes in less than an hour. I would like to know of a moderator can delete such answers/questions.
Sorry if this is a wrong section to post this in. Please, kindly state in the comments what I need to fix, and I will gladly do so.
Here is the email I got:
I'm writing in reference to your Stack Overflow account:
After reports of unusual voting patterns, we've determined that you engaged in a pattern of downvoting against specific users.
The focus of your voting should be on the post, not the user; this kind of community hostile behavior will not be tolerated.
As a result of these actions, I'm placing your account in timed suspension for seven (7) days.
These downvotes have been removed. Please refrain from engaging in malicious or revenge voting in the future.
Regards, -deleted- Stack Overflow moderator
