What does this user do? What is its role? I read the description in which it's specified that:

Own downvotes on spam/evil posts that get permanently deleted

What's the use of this?


How this process got Editor and Organizer badge?

How he got two orgnizer badge?

  • Badges are awarded automatically. The Community user earned the Editor badge because it inserts the text "Possible duplicate of bla bla bla" whenever a question gets closed as duplicate.

When you flag a post as offensive/spam, it generates a downvote on that post, but it isn't owned by you (it is owned by the community user), so you don't get the -1 rep hit associated with it

  • ok.. thanks for this explaination. Please check edit part.

With regard to Editor and Organizer badges, it's the Community user who automatically edits questions closed as duplicate to include a bar with links to duplicate topics in top of the question.

I'm however more interested how it got two Organizer badges.
