I apologize if this has been suggested already; I have found many similar posts but none dealing with this case; If a user downvotes a question due to lack of quality or not a real question; and the question is eventually deleted or closed, should the person who downvoted it still receive the -1 rep?
My opinion here is no they should not. The question was correctly downvoted and the community agreed; so much in fact they removed/closed the question.
I understand why downvoting costs rep, however in these specific cases I think it is understood that the downvoting was justified and helpful to the community (when i'm editing and voting on questions I generally am drawn towards the [-12] questions first.. kinda like looking at a car accident.)
So again; Why does downvoting a question that is eventually closed/deleted due to lack of information or not a real question still effect your rep?
