Serial Downvoting Victim

I know, some of these answers are not my best ones but seriously, what is going on here:


That the downvotes are ~4 seconds apart makes it look like some automatic process.

I know that there are scripts that try to detect such patterns. And I don't care about the reputation ;)

But I don't think that someone did this... I think it is something!

Has anybody noticed something similar?

That's surprisingly fast for serial downvoting, since you can't downvote from the profile page like Reddit, you need to load each answer first – Michael Mrozek Jun 21 '10 at 1:52
@Michael true, odd. – Pëkka Jun 21 '10 at 11:35

It's a serial downvote, probably by one person you somehow pissed off.

Don't worry, the serial downvote detection mechanism will undo them within 24 hours or so.

Why did you change your name...? I looked at your profile and I still don't get it. – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Jun 21 '10 at 0:57
@George I changed my name in jest for the first time here and decided to join in on the fun of changing your Meta name. The 30 day waiting period is the (relatively) newly imposed time span you have to wait before you can change your name again. – Pëkka Jun 21 '10 at 8:08
