I and my friend rate together. I asked Is it possible to make a new account and use it to vote on the old account? and you said our rating would be removed, but now just my fiend's reputation has been removed. What is happening?

Yes, his friend was me, and I know that the voting together for friendship is not good :( But now, his reputation not decreased, but mine was decreased. –  Mahdi Ghiasi Jan 11 '12 at 18:18
    
Try manually triggering a reputation recalc at stackoverflow.com/reputation (button at the bottom) –  Some Helpful Commenter Jan 11 '12 at 18:19

One of the devs ran a recalculation and your reputation went down to what it should be.
Please don't make a habit of artificially inflating each other's reputation.
