Eeeek! “Community” user got sudden rep boost.. how come?

I just noticed that on Mathematics, the Community User currently has 3 reputation points! According to the reputation listing, he accepted an answer on July 2, earning him 2 reputation points. But I don't see any posts owned by the Community User. How can that happen?

    In this case, Community gain reputation because the question was migrated on Mathematics on July 2, but the user who asked the question created the account that site just 6 days ago. It means the account didn't exist when the question was migrated, and the reputation gain for the already accepted answer was passed to Community. – kiamlaluno Jul 30 '11 at 14:30
