Yesterday I lost 10 rep. I can't figure why.

-3   yesterday
--------------
+5   10:46     upvote   How does formatting works with a PowerShell function that returns a set of elements?
+2   09:41     accept   How does formatting works with a PowerShell function that returns a set of elements?
-10  15:19     removed  User was removed

The "User was removed" is not clickable, and in my profile, I can't see anything in my activity related to this reputation lost.

Can you enlighten me ?

10

"User was removed" indicates that a user voted for one of your posts had their account deleted - the account deletion is because either it was requested by them, or removed for other reasons(spam account destroyed etc).

As a result, all of their votes were undone, and the rep you gained/lost was reversed.

Since the upvote was removed, you lost the 10 rep

    I had the same thing (loss of reputation) happen to me today, and managed to find this answer, which explains it well. Is it possible that the "User was removed" note could be changed to a link which contains this explanation? – PJC Nov 13 '12 at 13:28
  • @PJC not a bad idea - consider posting it as a feature request – Sathyajith Bhat Nov 13 '12 at 13:33
  • @Sathya - I'm relatively new here (note my rep ;) ) - if you can point me in the right direction, I'll happily do that! – PJC Nov 13 '12 at 13:38
  • @PJC here you go – Sathyajith Bhat Nov 13 '12 at 13:57
  • @Sathya Thanks - seems there's already a thread here link – PJC Nov 13 '12 at 14:12
