I really think that people who use more than 30 votes in a day should get the threshold for triggering the anti-voter bot increased by at least 30%. So for instance, if for me, who votes only 20 times a day, I need to give 8 votes to E to trigger the bot, it should be at least 12 for Paulo who uses all his votes. (Yes, this is a feature-request.)

I'm going to take a contrary view here. The serial voting algorithm, although probably imperfect, is enforcing a rule that for better or worse the SE people as a whole think is A Good Thing. Now you have stated that your main purpose in voting is to help build community, and it's undeniable that such voting can probably help that. But this is expressly not ...

SE algorithm thinks that Paulo Cereda is a robot?! Stupid algorithm, go to a corner and blush!

Whilst voting is in general anonymous, the moderator team have access to some data about unusual voting patterns. I can see from that one case which seems to fit the description in the question. I have taken some action (which I am sure you appreciate I cannot give more details about), and will be monitoring this in the coming days.

Whenever you feel there has been targetted voting, please flag one of the relevant answers. That way, we can build up data on patterns of behaviour. In the current case, I see that the automated system has reversed the votes. I hope the incident is isolated, in which case no further action is needed . However, if there are repeated cases, the mod team will ...

It's always possible that a given case of inappropriate voting you see might look just legitimate enough to the vote fraud algorithm that it doesn't get automatically reversed. It's also possible that a series of downvotes in quick succession really do come from all different and respected users at coincidental times. (I wouldn't have thought so before I ...

Even if you're a robot, I hope a you'll be able to read my post ;-). On Meta.SE there is a post to explain everything about serial upvote: What is serial voting and how does it affect me? . And in particular fore the reputation loss: Why don't I get to keep the reputation? The reputation was removed because it is not proper behavior and it is not ...

I think you went above and beyond, even explaining why you downvoted the answer. Explanations is meant to guide the user to provide an improvement, which in this case seemed to have worked. The serial downvoting that followed me be from the original poster but may also be accidental. Regardless, such "systematic voting [goes] against correct voting ...

I stumbled into this post, and although I'm not active here, I thought I could contribute... Although Gilles has probably passed me now, until recently I was the person who voted the most across all SE sites: over 40,000 votes on the site where I'm most active, 17,000 on the next most active, and over 100,000 across all SE sites. So you're not even close ...

The serial-voting reversal is posted as part of the reputation calculation for the day in which the reversal occurred. However, it may reflect the reversal of votes (and therefore also reputation) of previous days. For example, assume user ABC serially voted on your post on two separate days. X reputation on day one, and Y reputation on day two (let Z = X + ...
