This user received 5 downvotes in less than a minute, in good answers, an apparently after some discussion with another user. I don't think this is fair game. Any mod can look into it?

    $\begingroup$ The bot script ran in about 9:00 - 9:30 IST and the downvotes were all reversed. $\endgroup$ – Balarka Sen Jan 19 '14 at 5:21

Moderators don't have access to detailed enough vote information to do anything about such small issues, only SE employees have full access to the voting information. There is an automatic script that reverses serial voting that runs every night, just wait until it runs.

  • $\begingroup$ Do you think the system will see that? I wasn't sure if it was going to pick it up. $\endgroup$ – Pedro Tamaroff Mod Jan 18 '14 at 19:18

    $\begingroup$ @PedroTamaroff Nobody outside SE knows exactly how the script works, I'd guess that it will remove these votes if they are all from the same user, but I can't be sure. $\endgroup$ – user9733 Jan 18 '14 at 19:19
  • $\begingroup$ @MadScientist When will it run, actually, in GMT? (I am asking because I leave on presumably almost the opposite side of the world) $\endgroup$ – Balarka Sen Jan 18 '14 at 19:26

    $\begingroup$ @BalarkaSen 3:00 GMT as far as I remember $\endgroup$ – user9733 Jan 18 '14 at 19:28
  • $\begingroup$ Would any action be taken against the user that serially downvoted some questions? $\endgroup$ – Balarka Sen Jan 18 '14 at 19:51
  • $\begingroup$ @BalarkaSen Generally not, unless the user makes a habit of doing this. $\endgroup$ – user9733 Jan 18 '14 at 19:53

    $\begingroup$ (I see it has been done so in this case...) $\endgroup$ – Balarka Sen Jan 19 '14 at 14:53
