Sorry for wasting your time. Just another little edit.
  • Usually, I will say no. Cause, I have experienced something. If we could see who had upvoted or downvoted then, we might get some hostility. **Anyway, you was talking about only if answerer could see if questioner upvoted or downvoted.**
  • I will say answerer doesn't have to see if questioner upvoted or downvoted. If they had seen your post and if that worked for him than, he will upvote or ignore (I personally don't suggest to ignore (some people usually don't like to upvote or downvote that's why I said that) but, if that answer is good than, other users in the community might upvote that). And, if they didn’t find that useful they will comment and downvote. After 1 or 2 comments he/she might ignore your comment cause, they might think that the answer isn’t useful and "I" believe he can't solve my problem. Then, they will downvote or ignore.

If you see that a single person is down-voting (serial voting) all your post then, if you can know who that is then, you will downvote his posts either or, you will bad behave with him indirectly since you have to follow Code of Conduct so, you can't bad behave directly.

I will say answerer doesn't have to see questioner upvoted or downvoted. If they had seen your post and if that worked for him than, he will upvote or ignore (i personally don't suggest to ignore (some people usually don't like to upvote or downvote thats why i said that) but, if that answer is good than, other users in the community might upvote that).
