Delete own post with score of -3 or lower.
This means, that, in order to earn this badge, we must create at least one poorly received question, and then delete it. This is, as others have pointed out before me, counter intuitive.
However, with this in mind, let's say I want to earn the badge, on purpose, as one of the linked questions pointed out in an answer (emphasis mine):
The peer pressure badge was originally designed to encourage a potentially good behavior; to reward users for deleting questions that might be poorly received and are perhaps unwelcome on the site. However, it can also paradoxically entice bad behavior by allowing achievement hunters to be rewarded for asking bad questions and then deleting them for a badge.
I concur the most with the final line of that answer:
The best way to earn the peer pressure badge is to not seek it in the first place.
This got me thinking though... I can imagine this has happened before, without prior questioning, and I can imagine that it might have induced a negative response for the user's experience as a whole.
Are there any adverse effects (outside of the negative impact to a user's reputation) to purposely earning the Peer Pressure badge?
- If not, why?
Bonus question, are there any solid plans for the removal of the Peer Pressure badge?
