I lost 500 rep points as a result of my {naive} good intention to share a particular answer with those who favorite a particular answer of a question.

I think that decrement is somewhat extreme and am requesting a reversal of the penalty.

On a related note, should there be a badge for reaching the daily cap for negative rep?

  • am happy this was corrected for you.

I cleared the spam flags and undid the spam penalties, but left the answers deleted.

  • We can actually revert the spam penalties ourselves? That's an interesting and good change.

    @Grace: mod\clear spam flags. The rep penalty is automatically removed.

  • Aye, I see that now. We didn't have that back in the early Stack Exchange 2.0 days, which led to some... regretful results.
