I would prefer to see a little less victim-blaming here.

(I'm not sure whether you intended it as such -- but that phrase "participation in flame-bait topics" sounds like it.)

How is this victim blaming? As I interpret it the claim is that the person was probably NOT the victim of systematic downvoting but instead made a lot of comments that are counter to what people like to hear, creating the illusion of same.
