Is this how rep-cap actually work - won't you get any reputation from up-votes once you hit the cap, even if your net rep for the day was brought down to less than 200 by down votes at the time the up-vote was cast?
Would this be fixed in a future rep recalculation and/or counted towards Epic badge?
