I recently noticed that I went down a bit in reputation and there is a 35p minus with the explanation "user removed", which didn't make sense.
Not that the reputation is matters but it would be good to understand what happened. Anyone can enlighten me on that point?
EDIT: isn't it odd, that the reputation a person has depends on the other peoples' existence? I mean consider this excerpt from SO-FAQ regarding reputation:
"Reputation is a rough measurement of how much the community trusts you; it is earned by convincing your peers that you know what you’re talking about."
The fact that a particular answer I have provided is disintegrated due a user being removed, doesn't mean I know any less or have contributed any less than what I did before?
I realize this is very trivial, since it doesn't really matter, and it effects everyone just as much, but it's still an interesting meta-problem to think about.
