There's an automated process that recalculates reputation periodically. You probably lost reputation because questions you had asked or answered were either deleted or migrated to other sites.

I want to go "OOO BURN" and rub it in his face, but he isn't even annotated for sockpuppetry, let alone put in the box for a week. What gives? Did he sock or not? – Won't Jan 28 '11 at 17:27
@Will: My bad, I added an annotation. I was going to forego the suspension, since he did bring this to my attention himself. – Bill the Lizard Jan 28 '11 at 17:34
