Loss of reputation because a "user was removed"

I just noticed that I lost 10 points of rep because "user was removed". I don't get it.

• My guess is that someone deleted their account and part of that led to some reputation loss on your behalf (maybe they voted on one of your questions). Jul 2, 2013 at 13:52

• IIRC, you also lose reputation points in MO1.0 if someone deletes the account. But in MO1.0 the loss is "silent" (you don't get notified) and "asynchronous" (the loss may show up some time later when a reputation recalculation is triggered). The SE2 software make reputation computations much more real-time and transparent. Jul 2, 2013 at 14:10
• @WillieWong : I never had that happen to me on MO1.0 -- I think I would've noticed a sudden drop like that, no matter when it occurred.

• There ought to be a "show removed posts" checkbox at the bottom of your reputation history. Does it not show when you tick it? Jul 2, 2013 at 14:21
• @ToddTrimble It may mean also that no-one who has upvoted you had his or her account deleted while on MO1.0.... :-) Jul 2, 2013 at 14:25
• Thanks, Andras. I ticked it, but I don't see it.

• Yes, Willie, I figured that.

• @WillieWong (and Todd Trimble): it is my understanding that on MO1.0 rep recalcs essentially only happened, when a mod triggered it manually for some user, that is to say never for almost everybody. I know I had the points for some self or otherwise deleted answers for months or even years. Only upon the move did the rep go away.
