This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
You lose reputation when you downvote and not for upvoting
Or if somebody has downvoted your question or answer.
Or if you're hallucinating.
Or if you have been transported (accidentally or by your nemesis) to the bizarro universe.
