Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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
