    $\begingroup$ Soham: You need the moderator concerned to answer this question. But I expect it's because there's dishonest voting going on, by sockpuppets. That's where some people log on with a different userid and vote for themselves, or for others in their "gang of trolls". Hence you see some vapid answers with massive upvote scores. Then when moderators clean up, there's some collateral damage, like to your reputation. Here, I've just given you an upvote to soften the blow. $\endgroup$ – John Duffield Jul 28 '15 at 13:55
  • $\begingroup$ You lost 30 reuutation points on June 12th, 2015, at 23:06 o'clock. It seems John Duffield's hunch is right on the money. See my comment in this meta post. $\endgroup$ – Qmechanic Jul 28 '15 at 14:06
