We have a clear need to test this - let us downvote you to oblivion, close this as off-topic (the other close reason that applies a downvote), and see if that clears your record or not. ♪ – Grace Note Apr 22 '11 at 14:42
@Grace, go ahead – YOU Apr 22 '11 at 14:43
-1 Happy to help. :) – user27414 Apr 22 '11 at 14:45
Hmm, [status-norepro]. Maybe we need a mod. Or Robert did something crazy. – BalusC Apr 22 '11 at 14:50
Urp...What?.... – Robert Harvey Apr 22 '11 at 15:12
@Robert, did you clear the flags after you closed that question as NARQ? – YOU Apr 22 '11 at 15:17
@YOU: No, just closed it. But I did do an edit. – Robert Harvey Apr 22 '11 at 15:20
@Robert, do you know there is 4 spam or offensive flags when you close that question? – YOU Apr 22 '11 at 15:21
@YOU: If you mean the moderator flags, I dismissed them as valid. It shouldn't be removing the votes, though. Not sure what is going on here. – Robert Harvey Apr 22 '11 at 15:23
@Robert, you dismiss those after you closed the question? If so, looks like automatic downvote for NARQ, OT question also got removed. – YOU Apr 22 '11 at 15:24
@YOU: Yes, that is my normal workflow. Take action, then dismiss the flags. – Robert Harvey Apr 22 '11 at 15:25
@YOU: Now that I think about it, it's possible that I accidentally clicked "invalid" rather than "valid." If that's what I did, then it would be perfectly reasonable to erase the automatic downvotes. – Robert Harvey Apr 22 '11 at 15:26
@Robert, for that case, I couldn't verify it anymore, since I didn't flag it, I mean I can't check my flag weight down or up. – YOU Apr 22 '11 at 15:29

Looks like moderators can remove votes from Community User (downvotes from flags).

Flags are also gone from the flag-list at 10k tools
