Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Two downvotes within 5 seconds of each other on two separate threads...seems intentional. What can be done?

You might just be unlucky today. :( I had one user downvote me twice in two separate threads because he thought my answers were vague, but he removed both downvotes when I edited for clarity. This was all possible because of the @targeted comment notification. – Ether Feb 1 '10 at 22:35
yeah...if there were comments i would (and do) certainly respond to them. will circle back once more to double check for any. sorry it happened to you too. – AJ. Feb 1 '10 at 22:36
If only there was a way to force a comment on downvotes... – juan Feb 1 '10 at 22:40
Yeah...and it's spreading. More downvotes. Ugh. – AJ. Feb 1 '10 at 22:41
If it's all the same person and there are a sufficient number of downvotes, the votes will likely be detected and removed by the suspicious-voting-patterns script. – mmyers Feb 1 '10 at 22:43
Comments explaning downvotes should be mandatory. – David W Sep 16 '12 at 23:24

Flag the moderator to check on it. They're quite helpful.
