Recently, I came across an incident in which I flagged a question as it was unclear. But, the message reads: Put on hold as unclear what you are asking. Even, I suffered a deduction of 2 votes. When I didn't post the question, why is Physics SE specifically targetting me?

Link to the question:

What is the coefficient of volume expansion for ideal gases?

    $\begingroup$ Hi Shishir. Looking at your rep page I can't see any reputation loss yesterday. $\endgroup$ – John Rennie Aug 10 at 5:34

    $\begingroup$ @JohnRennie But I suffered a loss of 2 votes from 360 down to 358. How did it occur? $\endgroup$ – Shishir Maharana Aug 10 at 6:30
  • $\begingroup$ Also, it was written "Put on hold as unclear what you are asking". I didn't even ask that question, so why are they referring to me as 'you'? $\endgroup$ – Shishir Maharana Aug 10 at 6:31

    $\begingroup$ Did you downvote a couple of questions? Each downvote costs you one rep point. $\endgroup$ – John Rennie Aug 10 at 6:45

    $\begingroup$ @JohnRennie Only downvotes on answers cost a rep point. $\endgroup$ – Chris Aug 10 at 9:45

That question seems to be a red herring. The yellow on-hold message text is primarily meant for the original poster (OP), not you.

The deduction of 2 points from your reputation is caused by something else. For example, a suggested-edit gain of 2 reputation point was later removed again when the edited post was deleted on August 3rd, 2019. (Deleted posts require 10k reputation to view.)
