# Serial downvoting of my old question [duplicate]

I am banned from asking questions on the main site due to the previous four questions. I wrote them when I just joined the site almost one year ago, but in recent days I am getting downvoted on my questions every day.

I get at least two downvotes on my questions, and the downvoter doesn't give any reason for downvoting, and I am seriously pissed off by this, because the serial downvoter regularly downvotes my posts, irrespective of my content.

Taking the example of this question,

Why is gravity so special?

This is the most recent question I asked, and I received a downvote on it. And the serial downvoting is very irritating and discouraging!

Edit:) today too I got one one down vote on my old question.

Reason for change in colour of light same as yesterday one. And Why is gravity so special? it really scare me now.

• Note: Your (automated) ban is the result of much more questions than four - those are only the visible, i.e. non-deleted, ones

• What is your evidence that the same person is downvoting multiple questions of yours? I think this is a baseless accusation. Feb 5, 2020 at 0:41
• About your edit - that is likely a consequence of the "meta effect"; where posting about something on meta brings more attention to that post, for better or worse.

There are automated tools to reverse serial voting, but they are not perfect. If the downvotes persist for more than a day, raise a moderator flag if you think there is uncaught serial voting going on.

Please remember that "serial voting" refers to a single other user targeting you with their downvoted specifically. Ordinary users do not have access to any information to determine that this is, in fact, what is going on - it is easy to see patterns where there are none.

• Sir what to do I do because everyday I can see my post getting down voted. With no comment.@ACuriousMind. Feb 4, 2020 at 8:21
• @Yuvraj as he said you should raise a custom moderator flag if the case persists.

• There is no obligation for a downvoter to comment on the reason for the downvote. Feb 5, 2020 at 0:49
• @G. Smith I agree - did I write anything that gave you a different impression?

• @ACuriousMind No! I was responding to Yuvraj’s comment complaining about downvotes without comments, and I forgot to add the appropriate @. I know you know the rules of the site, but perhaps Yuvraj doesn’t. Feb 5, 2020 at 7:21
• @G.Smith that is very bad, that downvoter is not obliged to write an comment, why so? Then how can the question quality be improve we all here to make this site a better place and learning should be in habit. That is totally wrong. Feb 5, 2020 at 7:36
• @G.smith that is total irony because on main site every user ask for comment whenever people think that question quality is not upto the mark. Feb 5, 2020 at 7:37
• @yuvrai That has been discussed many times before, e. g. physics.meta.stackexchange.com/a/12433/50583, physics.meta.stackexchange.com/q/2817/50583

• @YuvrajSingh... They are entitled to ask, but not to get what they ask for. Allowing (but not encouraging) downvoting without commenting is part of the intentional design of StackExchange. Feb 5, 2020 at 20:13

I looked at your 4 questions now and here is what I have found so far:

• You are getting serially downvoted by 2 users (with reputation $$\gt 125$$)
