I understand that 3 reputation points is nothing, but I randomly lost three reputation points and under my reputation in my account it does not say why I lost these three points. Does anybody know why I would lose three points? It seems very awkward, because usually you lose 2 points, 5 points, 10 points or etc. but not an odd number(except for 5).

    $\begingroup$ Did you down vote any questions? Those cost 1 point each. $\endgroup$ – Jon Custer Apr 20 '15 at 21:35

    $\begingroup$ @JonCuster I think you mean answers, not questions. :-) At any rate, Benichiwa, your profile only shows 1 downvote, so unless caching has really messed up, it's not the case. $\endgroup$ – HDE 226868 Apr 20 '15 at 21:39
  • $\begingroup$ @HDE226868 - Good point. I blame general confusion and bureaucratically-induced memory loss... $\endgroup$ – Jon Custer Apr 20 '15 at 21:40
  • $\begingroup$ @JonCuster Always shift the blame to the bureaucracy. $\endgroup$ – HDE 226868 Apr 20 '15 at 21:43

That's because the community deleted one of your questions with 1 upvote (+5 rep. pts.) and 1 downvote (-2 rep. pts.), leading to a net change of -3 rep. pts.

More specifically, the question was deleted automatically because it was closed, had no net upvotes, and had not been edited for 9 days prior to the deletion. For more details see this thread. (Hat tip: Emilio Pisanty.)
