Trolling Behavior on StackOverflow

I have asked a question on Stack Overflow based on discussions between myself and a few others members of Delhi Data Science groups

http://meta.stackoverflow.com/q/296887/447537

How do we report trolling behavior, bullying or harassment in terms of constant and targeted down voting?

I have sometimes noticed trolling behavior by a group of people, they are fairly highly ranked in terms of reputation, but have abysmal manners in terms of snark, group down-voting as well as targeted down-voting.

How do i report such behavior?

Does Stack Overflow have any remedy for small and new users targeted by high reputation users ?

a lovely tool for Data Explorer in Stack Overflow

Have we met?

Where have I ‘met’ another user? (Reminder, Jon Skeet’s user id is 22656 :) May throw up some false positives because of @Name matches.
