That was the last page of the "Week" view. Losing 8867 rep in one week surely can't be true.

@Will, I always wondered why he didn't create another account and started over... or perhaps he did do it... –  jmfsg Mar 2 '11 at 15:30

Suspended users will now have their interval scores set to 0 as a no-participation indicator for the period, the same way their overall reputation is set to 1 during the suspension.

When returning from a suspension, a user's reputation is recalculated, so their proper league scores for each interval will be restored. As with overall rep, a suspension doesn't in any way permanently penalize you here.

Fix confirmed. Thanks. –  Chichiray Mar 3 '11 at 2:58

He got hit by a rep recalc yesterday. Since he's suspended, his rep was apparently set back to 1 instantly, so the system does think he lost 8,867 rep this week. Suspensions are even more rare than bounties, so I doubt there will be a fix for the corner case.

Makes sense, thanks. –  Chichiray Mar 2 '11 at 15:28
    
If someone's rep goes from 8867 to 1, aren't they theoretically gaining 8866 rep in one week? –  Thomas Mar 3 '11 at 3:15
    
@Thomas: That looks like a steep downward slope to me. They won't seem to be gaining that rep back until the suspension is lifted. –  Bill the Lizard Mar 3 '11 at 4:25
    
How does one manage to accumulate -8867 rep anyway? That takes dedicated effort at being a jerk as opposed to a single bad day. –  Thomas Mar 3 '11 at 5:33

@Thomas: -8867 isn't his total, it's how much his rep changed. –  Bill the Lizard Mar 3 '11 at 5:38
