Is the Critic badge awarded prematurely
I just accidentally clicked the down-vote arrow on an answer (my mouse was over it and my hand twitched). I realised my mistake and clicked it again to undo it.
I was surprised to receive a "Critics" badge for the down-vote.
Don't get me wrong - I fully intend to down-vote and earn my Critics badge fair and square but I would prefer not to win it by mistake.
P.S. Do I get a badge for my first Meta question? ;D
