I noticed that in the last few hours (or half a day), 4 of my posts were down voted (3 regular, 1 meta).

It made me wonder if it was done on purpose.
Not that I don't accept being down voted, it means I should check again the question to be sure it's good - but right now it just seems weird.

From my experience, it's odd to get so many (relatively) down votes in such a short period, and without a single comment explaining it. Moreover, two of the questions are around 2 month old, and got positive feedback until that moment, and so again - no explanation about the reason.

The relevant posts: 1, 2, 3, 4.

So is it just coincidence or it was done on purpose?

Without commenting any further on the specifics, I can tell you that we're aware of this and are taking action.

    If it's any consolation, I apparently cheesed somebody off a couple of weeks ago and they went on a downvote spree against me, not just here but on Super User and Meta Stack Exchange. The vote reversal worked for each instance, so I shrugged it off.

  • Oh! I haven't known it's such a common thing. But I learned that the system knows how to take care of it, which is really cool Jul 6 '18 at 5:39
  • @jonsca, can you please check that again? All my latest questions (which weren't a lot since I wasn't very active in the past year) got downoted pretty fast, which led to their deletion. And I'm pretty sure not all of them are so bad. Aug 6 '19 at 12:29
  • It's less about the few points, and more about the fact that I can't ask anything anymore, since it's just getting downvoted and then unnoticed Aug 6 '19 at 12:30
  • @arieljannai I undeleted your latest two questions that were deleted. I don't see you as blocked by the system, so you should be all set.

  • @jonsca I guess if you did it it means there was something around it, so thanks for the kind help! Aug 9 '19 at 11:57
