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... –  jmfsg 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
