So this one person has a ton of badges but one reputation! I don't think this is possible unless there's

A. A bug

B.(unlikely) his questions got flagged as SPAM.

I've seen this happen to a lot of people and it's really annoying because I can't see people's reputation. Please fix. I have a picture of it here... enter image description here

My real question is: why does this happen? Thanks. This has happened to about ten profiles I clicked on.

    Why the down-votes? Jun 10, 2016 at 22:26

This is not a bug. Retrosaur normally has tens of thousands of reputation points and earned those badges through normal use of the site. Right now this user is on a temporary suspension, so the rep was temporarily set to 1 by the system. You can see the suspension info by clicking on the user's profile page.

This account is temporarily suspended to cool down. The suspension period ends on Jul 9 at 23:22.

Once the suspension ends, the user's reputation points will go back to normal.

The specific reasons why a user was suspended are private between the moderators and the suspended user, but in general it is because the user has a pattern of not putting in the effort to learn and improve over time or a pattern of disruptive behavior.

More information about temporary suspension can be found on this blog post
