Can you set a bounty bigger than your current rep points? (Look here)
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
That's more of a bug in the rep graph you linked; a user's rep is never less than 1.
The user was able to submit a bounty that large because it was created when upvotes on questions were worth 10 points (they are 5 now) and the majority of his received upvotes are on questions.
