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.

Currently a user can downvote someone, get the badge and then cancel the downvote and their badge isn't removed. Is this on purpose or is it a bug?

This is . Badges (except for tag badges) are not revoked, even if the criteria are no longer met.

Thanks for clearing that. – Divi Mar 7 '11 at 4:51
except in exceptional circumstances. Badge removal does happen but it is not common. – Jeff Atwood Mar 7 '11 at 5:35
