I wonder whether unchecking an answer causes some loss of reputation to the answerer.
A user that I hold in great esteem for his skills as a brilliant mathematician and a clear and patient teacher has asked me to uncheck one of his answers in order to give the question more evidence and opportunities to get an answer even more detailed than his, but I do not want to damage him in any way. I think that losing reputation is a damage because, by losing reputation, one loses opportunities to start bounties.
Does unchecking an answer cause a loss of "rep"? I thank you for any answer!
