  • Thanks Tim :) I hope i get the rep. points back. total of 32 downvotes. – Tarun Jul 23 '11 at 14:27

Votes are anonymous, but voting behaviour like this should be automatically detected and reverted within a day. If they are not, you can email team@stackoverflow.com and they can look into it for you.

    @Tarun Someone just did this to all of my posts as well. Maybe there's a bot, or someone in a particularly bad mood... – Jeremy Banks Jul 23 '11 at 9:32

  • @JeremyBanks: and is voter punished for these votes? – genesis Jul 23 '11 at 10:49
  • @genesis No, they're not, although I would expect the team to do something in particularly abusive cases. – Jeremy Banks Jul 23 '11 at 10:54

    yeah, i realized it that it would be this guy. He seems very very angry that I downvoted him. – Tarun Jul 23 '11 at 10:45
  • Where's the link?!? How are all of the Meta users going to enact their revenge by downvoting his answers? – Cody Gray Jul 23 '11 at 10:46
