This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

@Simon Maybe. But the difference there is much lower (6) and the log is showing a greater value, than profile. – eugene y Oct 12 '10 at 19:06
They're still for similar reasons (e.g. upvotes/downvotes on deleted posts). – Gelatin Oct 12 '10 at 19:16

Because your score is not updated for all changes. The /reputation page is the more accurate and shows what you will have after a recalc.

Possible reasons:

  • You got upvotes on some answer and then the question was deleted.
  • you delete a post with upvotes of your own.
  • there are some more scenarios.
