Mysterious downvotes (14 random downvotes in 5 minutes)

Yesterday I down voted someone in this question.

Afterwards I got down votes to my answer in that question and in:

which are two of my questions with more up votes. And without comments explaining why.

What can/should I do in this case?

Serial down-voting can (and is) detected automatically, but requires more than D down-votes in less than M minutes from the same person where "D" and "M" are unknown to anyone outside Stack Overflow.

Unfortunately 2 or 3 down-votes probably won't trigger the system. If you think they were unfair then flag one of the posts as Lance suggests.

Otherwise just accept it as part of life on Stack Overflow and move on.

It takes 5 votes before even moderators can see it. –  mmyers Jul 19 '10 at 20:47
    
@mmyers - thanks for clarifying that. I did have 5 in the back of my mind, but I wasn't sure. –  ChrisF Jul 19 '10 at 20:54
