A few days ago I noticed that 50 reputation points vanished overnight from my total. This was particularly galling since I had just crossed the 2,000 mark and the difference left me back in the 1900s. Has anyone else had this happen to them and does anyone know of an explanation?
I've seen the threads on SO and the SE blog which discuss the mechanisms for "correcting" anomalous voting patterns and such. However, in the absence of any formal notification or transparency in this correction process, such a change is disturbing to say the least.
Of course, if I inexplicably lost points some others might have inexplicably gained, possibly some because of the same underlying voodoo. However you should also be concerned. Tomorrow you could be on the receiving end.
