How does “Reputation” work?

Today I downvoted this answer and for some reason I got a -1. This was the first time this happened and I've been a member for about two months now.

Acording to this thread downvotes were made free a while back. Did you guys just revert that policy three minutes ago?

Downvotes on questions are free. Downvotes on answers aren't, nor were they ever.

Community wiki answers are an exception.

You see. Don't ever promise free stuff. They start to think everything's free. – Lee Louviere Aug 3 '12 at 18:47
