How does SO prevent malicious downvotes as a revenge against the community?

I've recently fallen victim to unexplained downvotes in one of my posts. While this was obviously enraging, it brought up an interesting question about SO regulations against downvoting.

Suppose that I was downvoted for one of my posts, and I have very poor moral standards (hypothetically), what regulation exists to prevent me from taking my anger out on the community by downvoting every single post for an extended period of time?

I understand that this will raise a few eyebrows, but as a part-time penetration tester it's in my nature to assume the worst of people. But I believe that rules and regulations exist for this reason, to regulate the worst of people, and therefore should be comprehensive enough to cover such cases.
