When hovering over a site's logo in the 'Achievements' dropdown box where your net rep change is negative, it says (emphasis mine):

You earned -5 reputation

Now, I agree that isn't wrong, but it doesn't sound right. It kind of feels like the system's mocking me (yes - it bothers me that much!).

Can it be changed to check whether the net change is -ve and if it is, then say:

You lost 5 reputation

    Stack Exchange is becoming self-aware and sarcastic it seems... – user289879 May 30 '15 at 15:16

    At least they could use a proper minus sign, i.e., −5 instead of -5. – Wrzlprmft May 30 '15 at 15:35
