Why did I earn vote down privilege before 125 reputation score?
In February 2011, there was a change to privilege system which pushed old notifications to users who didn't get them. Today I received such a notification:
"Congrats, you've gained the privilege - vote down"
The thing is, my notification was not "lost in the mail". In fact, my reputation history shows that I never surpassed the required
125 reputation to gain this privilege!
What's going on here?
