Recently I have been randomly downvoted and I suspect it is the same user. The user doesn't stop at downvotes. He/She ensures that he/she upvotes the other answer where I have replied no matter how good my answer is. Fair enough, I don't loose my sleep over it but how do you deal with such users? So I thought of searching meta and I came across THIS question where a mod did specify that
If you suspect you've been downvoted by a particular user, flag the thing that makes you suspicious of that user (a comment they made to that effect for example).
There was another thread which I am still searching but unable to find where a mod had said the same thing... "To Flag It"
On three occasions, I did that. On two occasions, It was marked as helpful but on the 3rd, I was confused with the Mod comments.
Can any mod share some light on it? When can or can't a mod help with downvotes?
I am not worried about reversals. I want to understand the process and hence my question above. If you see THIS link, the last line says that
If you find you are the victim of serial voting multiple times within a short time span, feel free to flag one of your posts for moderator attention and explain the situation so they can investigate further.
If the mods seriously can't do anything about it then I will stop flagging. Let those users downvote/upvote and be happy for all that I care :)
I am ready to accept an answer by a mod which can be as simple as "Sorry, We can't do anything"
