I was looking at my recent reputation changes today, and it said that I received -2 reputation because "Python program keeps hanging, no error message, just stalls at the same point" got deleted. The problem here was that this wasn't even my question, it's just that I had edited it earlier. Can someone help me understand what is going on here?


The 2 rep you earned when you edited the question was reversed when the answer was deleted. This is a normal feature - when a contribution is deleted, all rep gained from it is also removed.
