To Whom It May Concern, Ever since I've joined the Stack Exchange, my reputation points have be targeted for downvoting anonymously. There was no obvious problems with my posts and in a number of cases, there were positive replies. The pattern was the same-single or multiple downvotes with absolutely no reason or identification of user. Upset though I was, I let it go because I've seen a half a dozen other users with a similar problem here at Meta, such as Downvoting: What are the Effects of False Negatives? . In each case, the response was basically to stop whining. In any event,I was building up points in spite of this,so I let it go for the time being-until the past week. I have BEEN DOWNVOTED 4 TIMES FOR 10 POINTS IN THE LAST 2 DAYS,TWICE TODAY ALONE. Every time,it is the same pattern:No obvious mathematical or etiqutte reasons for the downvotes and completely anonymous. I reported it last week via email with no response. Apparently,though,it got someone's attention since I received the "Citizen Patrol" badge-and shortly after that,the multiple downvotes began. I fear whoever these users are,they'll downvote me to 0 if I let this go unchallenged and unchecked. So can the moderators PLEASE look into this immediately? Whoever these people are,it's disappointingly childish behavior and I wish they'd get a hobby. Thank you for your attention. Sincerely, Mathemagician1234
After reading this "question", I decided to pull up your answers on the main site and looked at the 50 (+/-) with lowest vote count. I upvoted for a few, and only downvoted one (of the ~50 surveyed).
I downvoted this meta question.
We should definitely start taking rep less seriously, guys. I don't like anonymous downvotes either, but I guess sometimes we miss something other might find not useful. If it really concerns you just leave a comment asking for an explanation and you'll probably get it - maybe not from the downvoter but from another user that might see the problem. I did it a few times and it sometimes was the case there was a mistake in the post. Anyways, I personally encourage to tell the person who posted what the mistake is; it is better for all of us. But definitely, don't make it a fuzz, take it easy and put some effort in being less sloppy or whatever the case is.
