Mysterious downvotes (14 random downvotes in 5 minutes)

Someone decided to check my profile and downvote every answer time would permit (23 of them).

Is this something popular?

Recently I checked a post on hacker news about a question about why we use i,j on counters. I realised I posted an identical question a few years ago and asked to close the question as an exact duplicate. Now I get that the new answer is superior to the answer I accepted, but I don't think it justifies a personnal vendetta.

Clearly I'm not getting downvoted for the quality of my answers but for a single action stackoverflow encourrages me to do, close duplicate questions.

There is nothing to gain from maintaining the website other than risking morons exposure.

Never mind. The downvotes will be gone tomorrow – Pëkka Dec 6 '10 at 23:48

A more detailed discussion is in an identical question
