Pretty much what the title says, but I think context is needed.
I already read Is it possible to lose badges?, by the way, but this one is not a case of one no longer fulfilling the criteria but rather, at least in my opinion, never having met the criteria in the first place.
At stackoverflow.com, I answered this question about C++. I originally intended to comment on one of the existing answers (the one existing answer, technically), but either couldn't find (after three minutes) a button or link to do that, or I do not have the required privileges to comment answers yet. Thus I opted for adding my comment as an answer.
When I posted the answer, the page notified me that I have earned the "Teacher Badge" for "answering a question with rank +1 or more" (not exact wording). With it, I also got some privileges such as chat mode. However, what I did does not technically count as answering the question, as it was a comment on an existing question -- the question itself is, already, answered. For that I feel it is kinda unfair that I have earned the badge and privileges, so I'd like to ask if there is a way to un-award the badge, remove the privileges or something.
Unfortunately I'm not that self-criticizing as to downvote my own answer, and besides it is possible the site awards me with yet another badge if I did it anyway, thus adding to the irony.
Thanks in advance.
