I lost 500 rep points as a result of my {naive} good intention to share a particular answer with those who favorite a particular answer of a question.

I think that decrement is somewhat extreme and am requesting a reversal of the penalty.

On a related note, should there be a badge for reaching the daily cap for negative rep?

I cleared the spam flags and undid the spam penalties, but left the answers deleted.

We can actually revert the spam penalties ourselves? That's an interesting and good change. –  Grace Note Apr 20 '11 at 17:21
@Grace: mod\clear spam flags. The rep penalty is automatically removed. –  Robert Harvey Apr 20 '11 at 17:22
Aye, I see that now. We didn't have that back in the early Stack Exchange 2.0 days, which led to some... regretful results. –  Grace Note Apr 20 '11 at 17:23
