In my reputation dropdown, on the top bar, I see -10 reputation for "user was removed". When I click on it, it links to my own profile page.

Why did this happen?

  • Don't cry, you've got 2844 rep anyway... And you have probably got atleast 15 rep from this question ;-)

  • @wilf reputation doesn't count on meta

See What does “user was removed” mean and why did my reputation change because of it? on the main meta. In short, a user who had upvoted one of your answers was deleted, so all their votes were removed as well, so you lost the 10 reputation you'd gotten from their upvote.
