This question already has an answer here:
I seem to have an anomalous drop in rep. 2656 points gone in the past hour. I know that the ways of SO are fleet and mysterious, but I would really like to know what triggers this, if not a bug.
Since I also see that my username was changed (from NewAlexandria), I presume this is probably a bug. Any insight is appreciated. I've left my contact info in the shot in case anyone needs to contact me directly about the tech details. I also seem to have lost all my badges - so I'm thinking bug, or I garnered some kind of extreme ban-punishment. This is the only SO profile affected.
Note: I've received some upvotes, and my rep didn't correct.
