I've also noticed this (and asked before you), I think stackoverflow is being hacked:… – Evan Carroll Jan 13 '10 at 2:40
Its not that it is being hacked, it is just someone has decided to be mean to people. – Tyler Carter Jan 13 '10 at 2:43
hackers are usually mean to people. – Evan Carroll Jan 13 '10 at 2:50

This seems to be a trend. Wait 24 hours, they should all be reversed if they fit the mass-downvoting profiler.

As for who did it, that is the problem with anonymous voting. It is anonymous.

While you waiting, you and this guy, can go hate the world together :)

I have a name I'm Evan Carroll, and now I'm an autobiographing teacher student, not a "guy". – Evan Carroll Jan 13 '10 at 2:50
@Evan, I actually appreciate it when people don't mention the full name. One can change the display name any time, but that won't be reflected in the text in comments or posts. – Arjan Jan 13 '10 at 8:32
but its my name right? I can't say it? – Evan Carroll Jan 13 '10 at 19:55
You can say your own name, but if I am linking to another user's piece of work, it is best for me to be non-specific. Like using 'this user' or 'this guy' instead of a specific user. If you choose to change your name, my response doesn't look weird. (Abstraction from Implementation) – Tyler Carter Jan 13 '10 at 20:56
