Here's a specific example I noticed today:

enter image description here

Those upvotes from ages ago were taken away and have removed the ability to reach the rep cap today. In fact, it appears that I can't even get my head above water today, it's like my rep cap is -24. Also, does this calculation take into consideration that those old upvotes might have been "free" upvotes because they were already above that day's rep cap?

I'm certainly not saying those deleted questions should not have been deleted; they probably should have. I'm saying that this is a "spooky action at a distance" where decisions made by somebody else in a room I don't even know exists causes annoying behaviour for me today.

I don't want to hear any crap about how 230 points is some miniscule percentage of my current total rep. I don't give a unicorn's ass about my current rep (the total number has been uninteresting to me for a long time). What I do like to see is >200 per day, from which I can see that somebody appreciated my answers today.

My Stack Overflow participation is basically a day-to-day experience, and having my contribution for today obliterated through no fault of my own is demotivatingdoesn't seem right.
