Tonight I appear to have received -35 points because a user was removed. What did I do wrong ? I don't think I have done anything recently on this particular forum ?

1 Answer 1


This happens when a user upvotes someones posts and then deletes his account. All upvotes (and downvotes) are undone. (I got -100 yesterday, presumably via the same user.)

So, you didn't do anything wrong.

    That should be made more clear in the tag. I thought I had been removed. Be still my beating heart. Commented Apr 2, 2014 at 15:32
  • @SherwoodBotsford If you look at your reputation, you'll see the text 'User was removed (learn more)'. The 'learn more' link contains a good explanation.
