Is it appropriate for users to lose privileges with handing out bounties? I've recently posted a bounty worth 400 points and consequently lost even the simple privilege of commenting everywhere. I think this drawback is uncalled for, and suggest that privileges are unaffected by points lost with bounties.

This is how it has always worked.
If there were no cost to a bounty, then everyone would post one, and they would lose part of their essential value as motivators.
3But if privileges signify the trust of community in a user, why would posting bounties reduce the trust the community places in the user?– OxwiviMar 8, 2011 at 10:52
@Oxwivi I see it more as, "I want an answer to this question so badly I am willing to give up this privilege in exchange." That said, I would definitely advise users to avoid going below 100 reputation. askubuntu.com/privileges Mar 8, 2011 at 10:55
I don't know - even if someone wants answers bad enough to give up privileges, there should be a limit to how much privileges one can lose...– OxwiviMar 8, 2011 at 13:03
1I think that it should be as such: You don't lose your current privileges, but you are farther from new ones. Jun 19, 2012 at 11:39
