After having contacted the SE staff and not having received an answer, how long should I wait before contacting them again with the same request?

In May and June I have received the baptism of serial downvoting of several of my questions. I contacted the SE staff, they analyzed the situation and fully restored my reputation (and also sent me an answer by email). The downvoting, though, continued for a while. It now seems to have stopped, so I contacted the SE staff once more a week ago. Since then, nothing happened to my reputation and no answer has been received from them. How long should I wait before contacting them again with the same request, in order for me not to be considered rude or aggressive?

    $\begingroup$ FWIW: I investigated your case. It is, indeed, the same user. The total number of downvotes is so-so. It is not entirely obvious to me that it is targeted voting, but the weight of history pulls in that direction. My suggestion is that you flag a few downvoted posts. $\endgroup$ – Jyrki Lahtonen Aug 4 '16 at 17:47
  • $\begingroup$ @JyrkiLahtonen: 7 minutes ago my reputation got restored and I also received a message from the SE staff. Did you have anything to do with it? $\endgroup$ – Alex M. Aug 5 '16 at 12:22
  • $\begingroup$ No. I didn't do anything. Diamond moderators could delete a user, and that would void their votes, but that is something we should only do in more extreme cases. $\endgroup$ – Jyrki Lahtonen Aug 5 '16 at 12:41
  • $\begingroup$ Serial downvoting, that's rude! Is someone using the script by this user(OP)? $\endgroup$ – ABcDexter Aug 9 '16 at 12:06
