So there's someone today who decided to pump me up to ten thousands (said with Vegeta voice) hunting my questions and +1 them. Now I went back to 9664... fact is that when I started today I was beyond 9800 (otherwise I would have hit the cap limit for the day, and never reached 10k). So my assumption is that he removed the +1 to my questions, and also others he voted in the past (and he unlocked, probably by editing them).

The fact (bug? lacking feature? planned feature?) is that I don't see in the daily report any -10 for the removed points. This is kind of expected (if you +1 someone and then remove the +1, he does not see +10 followed by -10. The +10 just disappears) but because in general the +1 is removed and added within the same day. If this happens much later, the points disappear from the grand total, but you have no clue where they were removed from.

I mark it as bug, but it's probably by design, and in any case a minor annoyance, like the "where the badge comes from" case.

It's more likely that the vote fraud detector spotted the bad upvotes and just removed them. It may have happened for more than one day, hence losing more rep.

It's annoying - particularly as it can interact badly with the rep cap in some situations - but it's best to shrug your shoulders and move on.

    Sounds like it may have also triggered a rep recalculation.

    I'm surprised you didn't get bumped back down when you crossed the 100,00 mark Jon. A lot of people were trying to push you over.
