I thought this colum represented the total rep received on the question, but apparently not always. For example, John T has two votes on some question, plus an acceptance. The associated rep on his user page at the time I wrote this was indicates the rep is 570.

Is there a rule that would allow 10 + 10 + 15 = 570?

This result is not consistent with previous answers posted here

How is this possible? And no, I'm not envious, just curious. OK, maybe a bit envious ;-)

I believe there was a bounty on that question, which explains the spike in rep awarded to the accepted answerer.

Ah, I see the question mark shows it had a 550 bounty. So it turns out it's 570 instead of 585 due to some other reputation limiting thing happening? – DaveParillo Oct 15 '09 at 23:15
Yeah, maybe you don't get the 15 for an accepted answer if there is a bounty? – pkaeding Oct 15 '09 at 23:29
