Today I asked a question, it received two downvotes and was closed. Fine, I deleted it.

But right after that, my five most recent posts were downvoted within one minute, for no reason at all. The downvoter didn't leave a single comment. I suspect the perpetrator to be one person, because each post had only received one downvote. Clearly I was personally targeted, and not my post.

I got five downvotes in a row, if this doesn't qualify as serial downvoting then I don't know what qualifies as serial downvoting. Please reverse that, I know there is a rule to reverse serial downvotes.

As you can see I had 2610 reputation before the serial downvoting, I had only lost 10 reputation, it is tiny compared to my remaining reputation 2600. But I refuse to be a victim, the perpetrator is breaking the rules, and they have to be reprimanded.

Please reverse the serial downvoting.

    Note the downvoter likely has less than 1000 reputation, because one post targeted hasn't received a single upvote, and is a question without answers, so I deleted that post, so you can only see 4 downvotes on my profile now. May 4, 2023 at 17:14

    "if this doesn't qualify as serial downvoting then I don't know what qualifies as serial downvoting" - I agree it sounds like you were serial downvoted, but that's just 5 votes. Received 38 downvotes on different posts in 4 minutes

    Serial down votes are normally automatically reverted in 24 hours.

From what I can tell, it was reversed on its own. Failing which, moderators can't check up on individual votes - had it not been reversed, we'd have escalated it to the community team to handle.
