Talk about giving with one hand and taking away with the other.

See this question for an explanation of the issue in detail. I thought it was only for the blog site, but apparently it involves hats, too.

Seriously, this is getting tiresome. I'm close to 100K rep among the various SE sites I belong to, and I think I've earned the right for my login to be known by now, and not to be told

Are there any devs reading this who can help? Or am I being "handed my hat" in another sense?
