In How does the Offensive Flag work?, I read the description about a post earned 6 flags (spam or offensive):
6 flags (spam or offensive): post is locked, deleted, and the first revision owner loses 100 reputation.
I think this rule is unreasonable. Let us imagine such a scene:
- I post a great answer.
- Someone (with full edit rights) edits my answer, and spamming on it. So other users hate the answer can be expected.
- Then the spamming revison brings 6 spam or offensive flags, and my answer will be deleted.
- According to the rule, as first revision owner, I, instead of the spamming revision owner, will lose my 100 reputation.
Yes, I post the answer, however I never do anything wrong in this post. I will be punished, and the malefactor remain at large.
So, I think, reduce the spam/offensive revision owner's 100 reputation when a post was flaged as spam or offensive is more reasonable. Do you think so?
