This question already has an answer here:
I lost 5 reputation for a User Was Removed, and yet I upvoted!!! I was in the 90's of reputation and now I have 88 for the User Was Removed thing, why do I HAVE to lose reputation for User Was Removed even when you upvote that same user that was deleted! I looked at the info and did not understand why I lost reputation for the User Was Removed. It is so random!
