Clarifying the criteria for when rep from deleted posts is maintained

Not that I'm complaining for the specific case I'm about to mention, but this post was (rightfully) deleted from Gaming and I lost the 20 reputation points I had gained with all my hard work.

The post was made on Dec 1 '10 at 13:24, shouldn't I have kept the reputation? (I thought that older posts retained the rep even if deleted)

Again, I'm just curious as to how this works, that's all :)


It is reported in Reputation and Historical Archives: If the post has a score of at least 3, and it has been visible in the site for at least 60 days, you keep the reputation.
If you are talking of an answer, its score was too few; if you lost 20 points in a question, its score was 4, and you should have kept your reputation.
