This question is related to but distinct from my other question about how to encourage people to comment on questions or answers they down vote. It has do do with how the rest of us can best clean up after those who 'down vote and run."
And my question is this: Can we flag posts that have received one or more down votes without any comments? This question (posted by a user with 14 reputation points) got two down votes with no explanation.
When I am pretty sure I understand why a question was down voted, I just comment and try to explain the down vote myself, but I would like to know that I can flag situations when I don't feel confident I can explain these down vote(s), and I think a moderator is needed to help clarify.
Is that a legitimate use of the flag?
I really wish there was a way to hold voters accountable for explaining their down votes, but as far as I understand, there is no way to know or contact the down voters.
