# Will implicit down-vote affect my reputation?

Sorry for misusing term reputation

I've observed that some flags (I don't remember which!)(If not all) Cast an implicit down-vote on post (again, I'm not sure about questions or answers). Will that down-vote which I didn't cast show up in my down-vote count? (And this was the reputation I was talking about)

• @robjohn No it's not about rep (points) – user190024 Nov 6 '14 at 13:51
• The flags that cause $-100$ reputation are not downvotes (though the system may impose a downvote). Besides, since you didn't cast a downvote, no downvote will show up on your profile for flagging a post. – robjohn Nov 6 '14 at 13:55
