So, what’s happening to my reputation? How do I report something fishy?

Some people get very upset about their reputation loss. I just helped moving question of one of them off stackoverflow.com and now being downvoted a lot. Well, not much damage is going to be done as the guy doesn't have much rep left but anyway, but where's the script I heard are there to prevent such kind of behaviors?

If a single person has downvoted you more than 5 times in a single day, the abnormalities script, when ran, will pick up on it and reverse those votes.

This script runs at least once a day, so give it 24 hours and you'll be fine.

@Chacha: Do you have inside knowledge of the magic number? I wasn't aware that it had been revealed. –  dmckee Mar 22 '10 at 2:50

@dmckee Don't you know about my sock puppet accounts? :P meta.stackexchange.com/questions/42789/sockpuppet-admission/… –  Tyler Carter Mar 22 '10 at 2:54
    
@dmckee: you can try it on stack exchange –  Andreas Bonini Mar 22 '10 at 3:42
    
Looks like boundaries wasn't tested that well, downvotes got deleted even though there was just 5 of them. –  vava Mar 22 '10 at 10:04
    
@vava, a moderator might have read this post and fixed it –  Lance Roberts Mar 23 '10 at 19:59
