Currently if you downvote a post and it is removed your lost reputation point is not restored. Wouldn't it make sense to restore lost reputation if you downvote on a post that is subsequently removed?

You'll gain the reputation back when your reputation is recalculated. You can trigger a reputation recalc if you scroll all the way to the bottom of your Reputation Report.

@BilltheLizard I removed posts which was not supposed to do - if I knew that it would automatically ban you.. (I removed my post because I wanted to reask them, and then suddenly I could't ask anymore questions. Could you perhaps help me to lift my ban? – Castrovalva Nov 28 '12 at 13:34
