What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

Penalties for a valid spam/offensive flag are not displayed in a user's reputation history as shown to the public (I think that's a good idea). They are visible to moderators. Are they shown to the affected user?

Come to think of it, are they shown if the user ticks “show removed posts”? This may well have been a PEBKAC from the user (the post with the penalty was removed, obviously). – Gilles Sep 16 '12 at 12:39

All users already see this in their own profile. It's important to note that when a post is flagged a spam it's deleted, so they need to check the "show removed posts" checkbox for these entries to show up.
