Downvotes are not monitored and are wholly anonymous, correct? I suddenly found three downvotes in the space of a minute on separate questions asked at very different times and would like to know if they were legitimate downvotes or someone going through and spam downvoting me.
As in, I logged on and found that three down votes had all been directed at me within the space of a minute on questions asked on different days, not as though I found them all in that space of time and they were voted upon at very different times.
Our guidance here is to do exactly what you did, wait for the script to run and if the votes aren't reversed, it means:
It wasn't the same person. You'd be surprised how often that is actually the case
The votes did not trip the algorithm(s), which are designed to err on the side of caution.
The thing is, I hardly have any questions or answers to downvote. It's alright if it can't be reversed (if it was a problem in the first place), I would just like to know (if it is possible to know) whether or not they were legitimate downvotes (in which case I should look for why they may have been downvoted) or just someone going through my profile and clicking the down button.
