Try checking the "show removed posts" checkbox.

That "invisible" +1 rep is almost certainly the result of a post you downvoted being removed.

yep, that was it. Thanks. – yms Apr 21 '12 at 17:02
Has this question not been granted FAQ status yet? Something that explains generally how and why to use the "show removed posts" checkbox? – Cody Gray Apr 21 '12 at 23:44
@TheEstablishment Iunno. Not that I'm aware of. Personally, I don't get why the preference even exists in the first place. Seems like a no-brainer to enable this as soon as you notice it. – a cat Apr 21 '12 at 23:50
@lunboks it is not that easy to notice... maybe the position should be changed to the top of the list instead of the bottom.Currently if I do not scroll all the way down I cannot see the checkbox. – yms Apr 22 '12 at 2:36
