At Stack Exchange, one's reputation can never decrease below 1. Is negative reputation that is not counted in case of insufficient reputation deducted later on, i.e. when reputation is earned?
EDIT: SOLVED. The point of my question was that it is ambiguous from help/other Q&A whether, in the case of insufficient reputation mentioned above, the reputation is not decreased to below 1 just for the time being or the negative reputation is permanently ignored. The doubt was considering the fact that every user's reputation change is recorded, and there are reversions in reputation change in case of deletion of posts.
