if one person keeps downvoting me.



I'd care in that case. But in that case, I care because I don't like being trolled. In that case it's not about the votes. It's about being harassed. That's something I'd pursue with staff, and I'm not afraid to say so. Especially since they're probably doing it to others too.

And someone might say "it's just a website, get a life!"

What about the other person and their life? Sitting their harassing strangers for daring to contribute. At the other end of that website is a real person engaging in activity designed to undercut the site and harass its users, and that nonsense doesn't have a place in a constructive environment because it runs directly at odds with the spirit of sharing and mentorship that has been cultivated here.

So yeah, I'd feel like a Bad User(TM) for not reporting it. If they're doing it to troll they should get banned. Whether how they do it is downvoting or commenting.
Real programmers use butterflies
